Home Insurance in New York

Buying your first home is a big deal, and it can feel a bit overwhelming at times. There are a lot of details that need to be considered, one of the most important being your New York homeowner’s insurance. If you are a first-time home buyer, there are a few things you should be aware of when purchasing your first home insurance policy from AW Burchell Agency.

Why You Need Homeowner's Insurance?

Homeowner's insurance is a type of policy which protects your home in the event of a loss. This means that should something happen to your home; for instance, your home sustains storm damage, your home owner's insurance would pay to have your home repaired. This protection works in two different ways. First, it ensures that if damage happens to your home, it can be repaired promptly, and secondly, your financial security is also protected because, should expensive unforeseen damage take place, you will not be held financially responsible for it.

What Else Does Homeowner's Insurance Cover?

In addition to paying for damage repairs, homeowner's insurance will also replace the cash value of items stolen in a burglary. Should this happen, you will have the peace of mind knowing that you can replace your items. Also, homeowner's insurance covers the liability costs if someone is hurt in your home or on your property. This is also crucial to your financial well being because otherwise you would be held financially responsible if someone gets hurt. In the event of a lawsuit, your insurance policy would protect you from these costs.
