Why Is My Home Insurance Value So High?

At Bradshaw & Weil, Inc. in Paducah, KY, we write insurance policies on a replacement cost basis. Meaning, they are designed to completely rebuild your home as it were if you had a total loss. We work with local homeowners reviewing construction materials and special features of their home to determine how much it would cost to rebuild their home completely.  When you are going through the home buying process you will be talking with Realtor’s and Mortgage Lenders who will refer to your home value at a much lower limit. This is the market value of your home or what you paid for your home. We have found that market value limits not only significantly reduce the coverage you have on your home but also that the premium with companies who write at market value is often the same as or only slightly less than a replacement cost policy with a preferred company.
