Missouri Home Insurance
You might wonder how much value your home represents, and chances are it’s a lot. In Missouri, the median home value is more than $170,000, and that doesn’t include the value of your possessions and the money you will spend on upkeep. All in all, your home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make, and it is imperative that you carry appropriate homeowners insurance on the property.
Home insurance is one of the best ways to protect yourself against numerous household liabilities. Problems could happen in your home at any time, and they can be astronomically expensive. In the end, your home insurance can reduce this cost burden to a manageable level.

How does home insurance work?
The reason you buy home insurance is to protect your property, possessions and family against unexpected accidents that might occur at any time. Household damage and financial hardships might arise from numerous risks, including:
Your home insurance can provide you with substantial cost relief from these hazards. You’ll have a much easier and more effective way to recover from troubling losses on your property. In the end, having this coverage can make you feel much more secure in your home, even when problems occur.
Is homeowners insurance required by law in Missouri?
There is no law that requires homeowners insurance in Missouri. However, mortgage lenders frequently require loan applicants to buy coverage before they will approve an application. The presence of this policy will help the lender protect their own interest in the property.
After you pay off your mortgage, you might be able to drop this coverage. However, we never advise you to do so because of the critical protection home insurance can provide, no matter how long you have lived there. It offers you security, and that’s something you should always be able to rely on.
What coverage do I need?
There are numerous home insurance policies on the market, and beyond standard home insurance, other options include:
Each of these policies differ in the benefits they provide, but common coverage they offer can include:
Dwelling Insurance: Coverage pays for damage to your house itself following hazards that cause structural damage.
Other Structures Insurance: You can extend physical damage coverage to other buildings on your policy, such as detached garages, storage sheds or fences.
Contents Insurance: If your possessions sustain damage or loss from theft, then your policy can pay to help you repair or replace these items.
Loss of Use Insurance: If you have to move out of your home following property damage, then this coverage can compensate you for living expenses incurred as a result.
Homeowners Liability Insurance: Should someone get hurt in your home, or if you cause them property damage, then you might have a legal obligation to repay them. Liability insurance will help you do so.
All policies will include coverage limits, deductibles and other terms that could restrict how much your plan will pay for a claim. However, our agents are experts in helping clients tailor their policies to include endorsements and other benefits to adequately expand their protection.
