What is Renters Insurance?

This question is by far the most asked question our team here at Elite Team Realty receives, and the answer is quite simple. Renters insurance is an insurance policy that helps pay for your belongings if they sustain damage in any way. The one catch to this policy is that it does not pay for any possible damages to the house itself, such as a broken pipe or door.

What Are The Components of a Renters Insurance Policy?

It is important to note that every policy is for the holder in mind, which means some aspects are subject to change. However, four principal parts make up a renters insurance policy:

  • Personal property damage
  • Loss of use
  • Medical payment
  • Personal liability

Why Should I Have Renters Insurance?

If you do need to pay for housing damage, these expenses can add up quickly. It would help if you did not have to worry about footing the bill for rental and belonging repairs. When you invest in renters insurance, you can have any damage that your belongings sustain paid for so you can focus on other expenses.

How Much Does Renters Insurance Cost?

One of the biggest fears that our clientele has regarding renters insurance is how much it costs. However, this policy is relatively cheap, with an average policy costing around $300 per year. This policy could go a long way to making sure that your belongings get the protection they deserve.

What Damages Does Renters Insurance Cover?

Renters insurance can cover a multitude of damages, including but not limited to:

  • Fire
  • Theft
  • Lightning
  • Hail
  • Vandalism

It is also essential to know what damages don’t have coverage under renters insurance. These can include natural disasters and pests such as termites.
