Answer: There are two parts to a typical homeowner's policy:
- Property coverage protects the home and contents plus losses for additional living expenses.
- Liability coverage protects you from lawsuits. The amount of home coverage should be at least 80% of the replacement cost of your home.
If you own rare or expensive items, consider purchasing special contents coverage in larger than standard amounts or a separate policy specifically covering those items.
