The purpose of this article is to encourage our readers to review their home owners insurance every couple of years to make sure that the home owner’s insurance policy is up to date and that increased property values are adjusted on the home owners policy.

Most insurance companies require homeowners to have at least 80% of the actual value of your home (excluding the value of the land) in order to pay a claim in the event of a total loss. This is often referred to as "coinsurance." The results can come as a real surprise to a homeowner in the event of a loss. For example, consider a homeowner who has an older home that is insured for $60,000. Due to appreciation of home values, the home is now actually worth $100,000 -- which means the insurance company would today require the homeowner to carry at least $80,000 of coverage. Since the homeowner carried only $60,000 (60% of the home value), the insurance company may only provide 60% of the loss - a claim for $20,000 may result in payment of only $12,000.
