Could 1906 Happen Again? – Part 2

Once a homeowner realizes the need to have earthquake insurance, the question that arises is how much coverage is needed. Here are a few questions you need to ask yourself while determining the amount of coverage you need.

  1. If your home suffers major damage or is destroyed, do you have the resources available to repair it or rebuild to the standard you enjoyed before the earthquake struck?
  2. Where will you stay until you can move back to your home? How long will it be? How much will it cost you and can you afford the expenses?
  3. What about all the possessions you have collected over the years? Do you have the funds to replace the furniture, kitchen appliances, TVs and other electronic goods and clothes that have been lost?
  4. What about your first or second mortgage? Will you be in a position to keep making the payments while financing the rebuilding of your home?
  5. How will the loss of equity caused by the destruction of your home affect you in other ways?

If you put all these factors together, you will find that an earthquake has financial implications that can have a huge impact on your family’s future. Only the right earthquake insurance policy can cover you from all these issues and more and allow you and your family to get back on your feet as quickly as possible and get on with your life.
