The new year often serves as a great reminder for annual check-ups. Like your annual check-up at the doctor’s office, your home and homeowners insurance require an annual check-up too. Consider these tips when conducting an annual check-up of your homeowners insurance:
Make, or update your home inventory
Over the holidays, you may have received some new items which should be documented in your home inventory. In the event of a loss, having a home inventory can expedite the claims process. Create a home inventory
by listing your belongings and their estimated value. Keep more than one copy of your inventory in a safe and protected location.
Conduct a home inspection
Keeping your home and family safe and healthy starts with maintenance and preventative measures. Conduct a home inspection by checking for damage such as cracks, leaks, and breaks in the interior and exterior of your home. Should areas of your home be in need of repair, fix them as soon as possible to prevent further damage.
Review your homeowners insurance coverage
Many things can change over the course of a year, which may have an impact on your home insurance needs. Read through your policy to better understand the coverages you have purchased, and contact your agent
if you have any concerns, or need to make changes. Remember, Edison Insurance Company
has several coverage options
which can be tailored to suit your needs. Should the unexpected occur, you will have peace of mind knowing your home is covered.
We hope you take these tips into consideration to have a happy, safe, and worry-free 2018.
