Homeowners Insurance Oklahoma – Questions and Answers

Happy October!

 

August 14, 2018:  Norman, OK.  Encompass Insurance, a wholly owned subsidiary of Allstate Insurance (ALL NYSE) has entered the Oklahoma home insurance market with a bang.

The Encompass homeowners product will target consumers in select communities such as Norman by offering below market home insurance quotes  (in most situations) and a top quality product.

The product has all of the features and benefits that consumers have come to expect from Encompass and Allstate including up to $5,000 for emergency repairs that need to be made quickly following a loss in order to prevent further damage.

The Encompass home insurance product is being quoted and offered exclusively through Independent Insurance Agents, including Statewide Insurance Agency (Statewide)  in Edmond, OK.

Statewide’s owner, Von Nix, commented on the opportunity to offer Norman residents lower homeowner insurance rates by saying, “we have agreements in place to offer home insurance from many different companies; however, there are only 4 that we have confidence in to provide great claim service and excellent long-term value….Encompass certainly falls in this category.  We have seen several companies continue to take rate increases the last 4 years despite better than average weather in Oklahoma.  Encompass will provide the competition that is needed in areas like Norman to help keep other carriers in line from a pricing point of view.”

Oklahoma– What you need to know about homeowners insurance

Whether you own or rent, insuring the place you call home can help protect you financially if you suffer a loss due to fire, theft, vandalism, or other covered events. It will also cover you in the event someone is injured while on your property and wins a legal judgment against you.

Homeowners policies differ by which losses are covered, which coverages you choose, and what type of residence you own. You choose which policy is best for you, whether it’s a comprehensive policy that cover losses such as fire, hail, smoke, falling objects, vandalism and theft of personal property, or whether it’s a policy that covers only specified losses.

Statewide Insurance Agency is here to help you find the right insurance for your home

Whether you’re a home or condo owner, a renter, or a landlord,  Statewide Insurance Agency will work with you to find a home insurance quote that fits your needs. We specialize in making it easy to choose the home insurance coverage that gives you the best value for the best price.

Your home insurance policy is most often made up of the specific options you choose, so how much you’ll pay for your policy depends on:

  • What you select. Oftentimes homeowners insurance options are priced individually, so how much you’ll pay for your policy depends on what coverages you buy.
  • How much you want to cover. Higher deductibles usually lower your premium price by shifting part of the loss payment to you. For example, if you had a $500 deductible, you would be responsible for paying the first $500 of the covered loss.
  • Where you set your limits. You may choose to set higher limits than the recommended amount if appropriate to your situation and needs.
    • Worried you aren’t completely covered? Consider an umbrella insurance policy that extends your coverage.

The Right Coverage. The Right Price. The Right Value

The amount you pay for your homeowners insurance depends on many factors. Think of your personal housing situation, and the assets you want to protect.

Protection for Your Home

Property or Dwelling Coverage typically pays to repair or rebuild your home if it’s damaged or destroyed by an insured event like a kitchen fire or windstorm.

Protection for You and Other People

Personal Liability Coverage applies if someone is injured or their property is damaged and you are to blame. The coverage generally applies anywhere in the world.

  • When choosing your liability coverage limits, consider things like how much money you make and the assets you own. Your personal liability coverage should be high enough to protect your assets if you are sued.

Medical Coverage

This covers medical expenses for guests if they are injured on your property, and in certain cases covers people who are injured off of your property. It does not cover health care costs for you or other members of your household.

Additional Living Expenses

If you can’t live in your home because of a covered loss, your home insurance policy will pay additional living expenses—commonly for up to 24 months—while damage is assessed and your home is repaired or rebuilt.

Protection for Your Belongings

Your home is filled with furniture, clothes, electronics and other items that mean a lot to you. Personal Property Insurance helps replace these items if they are lost, stolen or destroyed as a result of a covered loss.

Scheduled Personal Property Coverage

If you have special possessions such as jewelry, art, antiques or collectibles you may want to talk to your agent about this additional coverage. It provides broader coverage for specific items.

If You Rent Out Your Home

Landlords may have the option to buy optional liability coverage for the risks posed by tenant-occupied dwellings. Visit our Landlord Protection Insurance page for more information.

Edmond, Guthrie, Oklahoma City, Yukon, Midwest City, Choctaw, Moore and Norman – Protect the Things that Matter to You

Make an inventory of your home and personal belongings. If possible, make a list as well as take photos or video – using two inventory methods can help expedite the claim resolution process. Keep this list somewhere other than your home. Keep in mind that your policy doesn’t cover damages caused by poor or deferred maintenance on your part.

Every home is unique – talk to us today to find out how to get the best price and value on homeowners insurance for you.
