Cover Your Most Important Investment
There are eight different types of homeowners insurance, which mean there are a lot of choices and factors you must consider before making a purchase. Since buying a residence is one of your most important investments, let AIM help protect your new home for an affordable price.
HO-1: Basic Policy
This is the most basic type of homeowner’s insurance; promising protection from theft, natural disasters, and damage from an outside party. It is important to note, however, that earthquakes and floods are usually not included in this policy.
HO-2: Basic Plus
An HO-2 covers everything protected by an HO-1, but also promises protection from more minor issues (I.e. the cracked structure of a home).
HO-3: The Most Common Policy
An HO-3 ensures protection against any incident included in the previous policies, while also including coverage for additional buildings on your residence, such as a greenhouse or garage. The only things an HO-3 does not cover are those situations which are specified by the insurer.
HO-4: Personal Belongings
Often referred to as renters insurance, an HO-4 only covers a person’s belongings. This is perfect for someone who is renting a house or apartment from someone since the landlord is the one paying for the structure’s insurance.
HO-5: Plus Other Incidents
An HO-5 form covers everything included in an HO-3, however also includes protection from all other incidents that are usually omitted from other policies, such as fungus or damage caused by animals. Keep in mind, however, that an HO-5 is significantly more expensive than an HO-3.
HO-6: Condominium Owners
Often referred to as condominium insurance, an HO-6 is meant to protect the structure of a person’s condo. It does not cover anything else because it is expected that whatever homeowner’s association you are a part of will provide additional insurance.
HO-7: Mobile Homes
An HO-7 form covers the same incidents insured in an HO-3 policy, however, it is solely used to protect a person’s mobile home.
HO-8: Older Homes
The final type of homeowners insurance is an HO-8, which covers everything included in an HO-3 but is modified specifically for older houses.
