Homeowners Insurance

See how affordable your homeowners insurance can be.

Homeowners insurance, also known as home insurance, is a property insurance policy that provides coverage for a private residence. A homeowners policy typically covers losses and damages to your personal residence, as well as furnishings and certain other assets within your home. Home insurance may also offer liability coverage against certain types of accidents that occur within your home or on your property. Most mortgage lenders require a homeowners insurance policy.

The GEICO Insurance Agency could help you get the affordable home insurance coverage you need. Combining your home and auto insurance policies could save you time and money. If you currently have homeowners insurance with another company, you could save more by getting a home insurance quote and switching to GEICO. Start a homeowners quote today.

Property Damage

Most policies cover damage to your house and any permanent structures on your property for:

  • Fire
  • Wind
  • Hail

Personal Property

Protects belongings that were damaged or stolen such as:

  • Furniture

  • Clothing
  • Dishes

Our Personal Property Insurance calculator can help you decide how much coverage fits your situation.

Jewelry

Limited coverage for jewelry stolen from your home, (usually $500 – $2,000). You may need special coverage for things in your collection like:

  • Engagement rings
  • Wedding bands
  • Diamond bracelets

We can help you with a jewelry insurance policy to cover your valuable collection.

What other risks may be covered by home insurance policy?

Personal Liability

Could help with medical expenses or property damage to others caused by you or members of your household, including pets. Personal liability could also help with legal expenses in the case of a lawsuit.

Examples: A visitor trips on loose carpet in your home and gets injured; or your child accidentally throws a ball through a neighbor’s window and breaks an expensive vase.

Medical Bills

Covers medical payments for minor injuries to people who don’t live with you but get hurt on your property.

Example: A visitor slips down your steps on a rainy day and gets injured.

Additional Expenses

Coverage for extra costs you might have to pay when experiencing a covered loss.

Example: A fire makes your home uninhabitable and you need to temporarily live somewhere else.

What isn’t covered by a typical homeowners insurance policy?

Here are some examples of things most standard home insurance policies may not cover:

  • Earthquakes
  • Flooding from naturally rising water
  • Maintenance issues like termites and insect damage, rodents, mold, or general wear and tear
  • Nuclear hazard

If you live in an area that is high-risk for any of these types of loss, you may be able to customize your policy to get the coverage you need.
