Famous Last Words of an UNDER-insured Homeowner
Homeowner: “Isn’t my agent supposed to calculate the replacement cost on my home.”
Claims Adjuster: “I’m sorry. Only the better gents do. Here’s a check for 18% less than what you expected.”
Homeowner: “AAARGHH! Why didn’t anyone tell me this? I can’t afford to pay this out of pocket!”
Dear Chicago Land Homeowner,
Home insurance can be boring. So it’s easy to want to get it out of the way, trusting anyone who'll provide you a quote.
But statistics say 67% of homeowners are underinsured by an average of 18% (according to the leader in building cost data, MSB).
Now, when disaster strikes, instead of being reimbursed to rebuild fully from their insurance company, 67% of homeowners are dipping into savings, going into debt, depleting retirement funds… just to get back to where they were.
The number one reason is replacement cost…If the replacement cost on your policy is lower than the actual amount to rebuild your home, your life savings may be at risk.
Here’s a story from one of our clients who came to Weiss Insurance based on advice from a friend.
“...after suffering a major casualty loss insured by a major insurance company with little compensation. A close friend recommended I check out Weiss Insurance Agencies. It was the best suggestion ever given me. The agent spent countless hours finding the best fit for my circumstances and in the end saved me more than a thousand dollars bundling all my personal insurance needs. Weiss has found a lifetime customer in me.” - Walter Jankowski - Buffalo Grove, IL
