What kind of protection is included in Homeowners' Insurance?
Homeowners in Greenville and throughout South Carolina may want to consider coverage for a variety of different but important circumstances. Most homeowners’ insurance policies include:
- Dwelling insurance pays to replace your home’s structure if it’s ever destroyed by fire, storm, or other causes of loss. When you purchase homeowners’ insurance coverage, make sure your policy’s limit is based on the replacement value of your home, which is often quite different from the market value. Also, inform your agent of any other structures you may have on the property and how you use them. Your agent can tell you if the outbuildings are included with your policy or if you need additional protection. Also, alert your agent to any recent updates or remodeling, as these may increase your home’s replacement value. Chandler Insurance agents are happy to meet with you to discuss these details and help you get the right policy.
- Contents/personal property coverage pays to replace the belongings in your home such as furniture, clothing, jewelry, and electronics. It’s a good idea to take an inventory of your belongings to ensure that your contents’ limit is high enough. Inform your local insurance agent of any unique or unusual valuables such as firearms, fine art, collections, expensive jewelry, or antiques. These items may require an added level of protection. Alert your Chandler agent of every asset so they may determine the smartest home insurance strategy.
- Liability insurance pays for damages if your negligence causes harm to someone else. Liability insurance is helpful to have in many unexpected situations, like when a visitor breaks an ankle tripping on your front step or if your dog bites a neighbor. If you operate a home-based business or entertain extensively at your home, let your Chandler agent know so they can address potential coverage gaps.
Flood and Earthquake are two perils often excluded by standard homeowners’ policies. If you think you may need earthquake or flood insurance, ask your agent to prepare a quote for these risks. Flood insurance has a 30-day waiting period, so don’t wait until a storm is forecasted to request protection. We can provide advice for Greenville and the surrounding cities and towns.

What is renters' insurance?
If you rent a home, apartment, or condo, renters' insurance is a must. This coverage reimburses you if your belongings are stolen or damaged by a covered cause of loss, such as fire. When you live in a multi-family structure like a condo or an apartment, you can be inadvertently impacted by your neighbors’ practices. For example, if the person next door forgets to extinguish a candle or accidentally drops a cigarette, your belongings can be harmed. For this reason, renters' insurance is critical. Chandler Insurance can help you find affordable, reliable renters' insurance in Greenville, SC, and the surrounding area.
