What is homeowners insurance?

Homeowners insurance is protection for you, your home, and personal belongings from things like theft, fire, severe weather, or even accidents involving an injury on your property. In the event that something unexpected happens, homeowners insurance can help pay for related expenses and protect your assets. Depending on your policy, you could be covered for expenses such as a hotel if your home is unlivable, roof repair, personal property replacement, or drying out services.

How does homeowners insurance work?

In the event your property is damaged, once you’ve ensured you’re safe and the source of the damage is stopped, you can file a claim. We’ll ask for details about what happened, the damage, and if you need immediate assistance. A Claims Representative will help process your claim and provide help if you need it. You might have to pay a deductible before your insurance coverage kicks in and your policy may have coverage limits, but homeowners insurance will take care of everything in between.

Home protected with homeowners insurance

What is home hazard insurance?

Hazard insurance describes a type of home insurance coverage that covers catastrophes, like fires and severe storms. Damage to your home from things like hail, strong winds, smoke, and fire are all considered to be in this category. Some hazards, like earthquakes and floods, are not typically covered by homeowners insurance and coverage will need to be purchased separately. Home hazard insurance is different from homeowners insurance but can be added to your standard homeowners policy. Depending on your state, you may be required to purchase specific types of hazard insurance, such as hurricane coverage.

Liberty Mutual offers lots of standard and custom coverages that can protect your home from hazard damage.

How much is home insurance?

With Liberty Mutual, the cost of your home insurance is customizable, so you only pay for what you need. Things that will typically impact the cost of home insurance include:

  • The location of your home and the surrounding environment
  • The type of weather your state experiences
  • The age of your home
  • If you have recreational features, like a swimming pool or trampoline

Generally, the less risk you have the lower your price may be. It all depends on your unique needs. Keep in mind that you can lower the cost of your premium by increasing your deductible, if you prefer.

How does Liberty Mutual compare to other insurance options?

When you compare quotes from homeowners insurance companies, you might notice a lot of similarities between your options. That’s because there are some common types of property coverages, such as Personal Liability or Hurricane, that might be required by your mortgage company or suggested based on the state you live in.

Tips for comparing homeowners insurance quotes

  • Compare coverages and make sure the options meet your needs.
  • Choose similar deductibles because they can affect your price from quote to quote.
  • Optional coverages, like Personal Property Replacement Cost or Water backup coverage, aren’t offered by all insurance companies, and could affect your quote price.

Other things to consider when comparing home insurance options are ease of use and convenience. Liberty Mutual property insurance lets you customize your coverage, so you only pay for what you need. We also have an easy-to-use mobile app that’s a digital gateway to your insurance. You can manage your policy, payments, preferences, and even file a claim from anywhere, at any time.

Another thing to consider is the insurance company’s reputation – for doing what’s best for their customers and their communities. At Liberty Mutual, we believe progress happens when people feel secure – and that goes beyond insurance.
