Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ's
Which homeowners insurance is best? The best homeowner insurance policies in Texas are the HO5 & HO3 policies that include "open peril" coverage. We're here to help you navigate policy differences and options.
How much home insurance do I need? Insurance companies use replacement cost estimators to estimate the replacement cost amount of your home. This includes characteristics of your home like size, construction type, interior quality and more. Make sure the dwelling limit on your homeowners policy is up to date, as it's estimated that over 60% of homeowners are underinsured. We review your policies every year, and will help you keep an eye on the big picture.
How much is home insurance in Austin? The cost is different for every home, but the main rating factors are location, age of home, exterior construction & roof type, insurance score, and distance to fire department. We have many options to choose from in order to find the best fit for your family.
Why home insurance rates increase? This is usually because of three items. First, most insurance companies increase the amount your home is insured for each year to keep up with inflation. Second, some of the discounts
on homeowner policies decrease each year - age of home, and age of roof. Third, home insurance rates can increase based on increased frequency & severity of claims. In Texas, we're experiencing more catastrophic storms, and the cost to repair homes based on building materials & labor is going up. We'll help you find a good balance between quality coverage for one of your biggest assets and cost.
Where to buy home insurance? Online shopping is becoming more prevalent, but attempting to navigate insurance policies & coverage limits without a licensed professional could cost you thousands at claim time. We have found that many people using online insurance companies end up with inadequate coverage and higher rates. Give us a call, we make finding the right coverage easy and painless.
