Your home is most likely the center of your family’s daily life, and your most valuable asset. Protecting that important asset with Scottsdale home insurance is not only a good idea, but it’s a smart, responsible idea. You’ll want to be financially protected in the event of a mishap, whether it be someone being injured on your property or a fire that causes damage.

You’ve got a lot of options when it comes to choosing coverage that will be ideal for you, your family and your finances. Depending on where you live and the type of home you live in, the right policy can also bring you peace of mind. If you suffer a loss due to fire, theft, vandalism or many other events, you’ll be financially protected. Policies differ according to which specific types of losses are covered, so before signing any policy, you’ll want to make sure that you clearly understand what is and is not covered. You will also want to make sure all of your assets are covered that need coverage – jewelry, electronics, furniture, etc. Your Scottsdale insurance agent will be the best resource for making sure this happens.

Some policies, known as comprehensive policies, can cover things like fire, hail, smoke damage, vandalism and theft. There is also life insurance in Scottsdale that will only cover specified losses, such as those resulting from an injury that happened on your property with the injured person winning a legal judgment against you.

So how much do specified and comprehensive life insurance policies cost? While there are general guidelines you can use to find out, you’ll need to consult your insurance agent for a thorough, accurate quote for coverage. Your policy will be made up of different options that you specifically choose, such as:

  • How much you want to cover: keep in mind that higher deductibles will usually lower your premium price by shifting part of the loss payment responsibility to you. So if you would like a lower monthly payment and you opt for a higher deductible, say $1,000 instead of $500, in the event of a claim you would be responsible for paying the first $1,000 of the covered loss.
  • Where you set your limits: While you’ll pay a smaller monthly premium for smaller dollar amounts of coverage, you still want to make sure that in the event of a large loss, you’ll receive enough to recover all of your losses. You can choose to only cover certain things, such as jewelry, or choose to have everything from clothing to appliances replaced, if needs be. It will depend on what you feel comfortable paying for your coverage.
  • What you select: Scottsdale home insurance options are usually priced individually so that you’ll be able to put together a “package” that is right for you.
  • Protection options: Some of the considerations you’ll need to think about that will come into play include medical coverage in case of injured persons on your property, additional living expenses you may need if you can’t live in your home during a time, protection for your belongings, and more.


The overall idea behind Scottsdale homeowner’s insurance is to protect the belongings that matter to you the most. Before you attend an appointment with your insurance agent, make an inventory of your home and your belongings; taking photos and/or video is a great idea, and can help expedite any claims and resolution processes in the future (do not keep this list in your home, though – an electronic list stored in a way that you can access it from anywhere, such as in your email account, is a great idea).

Every home and every homeowner should have a personalized, unique homeowner’s insurance policy that will have them covered – contact Summit Insurance Advisors today to shop for the best insurance options for you.
