Your home is likely the most expensive "thing" on your list, it is also your most important investment. You need a local Austin insurance agent that knows your needs and the best way to protect your home with the perfect homeowners insurance policy. Homeowners insurance provides financial protection against disasters, such as fire, wind, hail, water damage, theft and personal liability. A standard policy insures the home itself and the things you keep in it.
Homeowner insurance is a package policy. This means that it covers both damage to your property and your liability or legal responsibility for any personal injuries and property damage you or members of your family cause to other people. This includes damage caused by household pets.
Damage caused by most disasters is covered but there are exceptions. The most significant is damage caused by floods, earthquakes and poor maintenance. You must buy two separate policies for flood and earthquake coverage. Maintenance-related problems are the homeowners' responsibility.
