Downsizing can be one of the most difficult of transitions. However, many people face the need to downsize. Your current home may no longer provide you with the best amenities for your needs. You may be older and looking for a smaller home. On the other hand, you may be going through a significant life change like divorce. During the time of finding the right home, don't forget to reassess your current home insurance.
It is essential that you reassess your needs carefully. The home insurance you may need may be different from what you've had previously. Keep the following in mind as you work towards downsizing.
- Ensure the new policy covers the value of the home and provides ample liability risk. The amounts of coverage in these areas should be specific to the property.
- Take a close look at what you are getting rid of during the process. If you had special policy additions for high-end valuables, collections, expensive jewelry, art collections, or similar expensive items but got rid of them, you may no longer need these policies.
- Think about available discounts. For example, if you are striking out on your own after a divorce, bundling your home insurance with your auto insurance can help you save money. Anti-theft systems can also help reduce your costs.
- Where you live matters. If you live in a relatively safe area, your home insurance costs will likely be less.
- If you are renting, renters insurance is an ideal investment. If you own the home, ensure you have customized home insurance to meet your unique needs.
Before you buy or rent your next home, think about your home insurance needs. Every property is unique with various levels of risk. It is up to you to ensure that you get a policy that fits the unique needs of the space and your lifestyle.
