How often should you reassess your home insurance?
It’s smart to revisit your home insurance policy once a year and here are a few reasons why:
You may have acquired new expensive items that should be insured. Did grandma just pass down her pearl broach? Did you get a roomful of brand new furniture? These need to be assessed and accounted for on your policy. This also counts if you’ve given away or sold any expensive items as well!
Whether you just added on to your house or simply remodeled your kitchen, this could greatly change the price of replacing your home in case of damage. If you’ve had extensive work done, you may need to get an appraiser out to reassess the value of your home.
Building Code Changes
Glendale and Burbank are notorious for having strict building codes that change often. If your town’s building code has changed and your house isn’t up to standard, then you could be slapped with some hefty costs when rebuilding that your insurance won’t cover.
Did you just install a new alarm system? Perhaps you updated the locks on your doors. Any home safety measures that you took since the last time you checked your policy, make sure you mention to your agent! You may be eligible for a discount on your home insurance.
