Get a home insurance policy to protect your investment.
Homeowners insurance, also known as home insurance, is a property insurance policy that protects your home from events that can cause damage, such as a fire or burglary. Home insurance policies generally offer coverage in five sections. First two are for the structure of the home and its contents. Third for loss of use (inconvenience) and additional living expenses if necessary. Fourth is liability insurance if a person becomes injured at your place and they need to sue you for loss of wages or function, and last, personal injury protection in most cases. Most mortgage lenders require a homeowners insurance policy.
The Risk Coverage Insurance Agency could help you get the affordable home insurance coverage you need. The Risk Coverage Insurance Agency is a local insurance agency that offers home insurance coverage for homeowners throughout Austin and surrounding Cities. Their experienced agents can advise you on the best policy options to protect your home against both risk and price, whatever your needs are.
Why do I need homeowners insurance?
Homeowners insurance provides financial reimbursement to homeowners for the cost of repairing or replacing their home and its contents due to unforeseen circumstances, such as:
Fire or Lightning
Theft or Vandilism
Wind or Hail
Damage caused by natural disasters (such as hurricanes, tornadoes), etc.
It can also protect you financially if someone gets injured at your house or if you are held legally responsible for injuring another.
Who should carry homeowners insurance?
Most lenders require homeowners insurance, and most homebuyers purchase homeowners insurance policies.
Homeowners with expensive homes, valuable collections, or a high-risk lifestyle may need higher liability coverage limits.
The Risk Coverage Insurance Agency is dedicated to helping you find the right coverage for your needs at an affordable price.
What does a homeowners insurance policy cover?
Home insurance policies from Risk Coverage Insurance Agency generally come with certain standard features. These include
A homeowners insurance policy typically covers damage to your home caused by fire, wind, or water damage, including damage to your yard and landscaping.
In addition to the damage to your home, a homeowners insurance policy typically also covers personal items that are lost, stolen, or damaged.
Additional Living Expenses
If covered by homeowners insurance, this benefit provides additional money when repairs temporarily force you from your home. It helps pay the cost of housing elsewhere until repairs are complete.
Special Coverages on Personal Property
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
What may other risks be covered by a home insurance policy?
Personal Liability Insurance
In most cases, a homeowners policy will cover you if a visitor gets injured on your property or if a family member accidentally causes damage to someone’s home.
It could also pay the cost of defending against a lawsuit and give you money for any court judgments against you.
Medical payments will pay for the medical expenses of someone injured on your property, even if that person does not sue you.
For example, it’s snowing, and one of your guests slips and injures their back while walking down the stairs.
Personal Liability Insurance
We will pay additional living expenses if your home is damaged to being uninhabitable and will enable you to pay for temporary housing.
What isn’t covered by a typical homeowners insurance policy?
In most cases, a homeowner’s policy does NOT cover floods, earthquakes, or other natural disasters outside the geographic area where there is a named storm. Unless we add to your policy, our agents will make sure if this is the case.

qustions about insurance policy
Are there ways I can help protect my home?
Homeownership is a big responsibility, but it can be even more rewarding. You’re ahead of the game with preventive maintenance and know your home will last for years with proper care!
How many homeowners' insurance coverage do I need?
Homeowners’ insurance coverage is an essential topic for many homeowners, but it can be challenging to understand what exactly you need.
You might think that the amount of money spent on your house each year should cover anything from a broken pipe in one bathroom to replacing everything inside if there were flash floods or fire damage!
Having an agent who knows their field of research helps analyze and research policies will ensure that they get just enough protection at the best possible price and make sure no other gaps exist where something slash happens without planning.
How can I prevent claims at my home?
The best way to prevent claims at your home is by being a vigilant and careful consumer. It would help if you recognized potential hazards before they happen.
Don’t let things get cluttered or damaged, so you don’t have an accident that leads liability insurers into paying out money on behalf of their clients (you).
Should I get an umbrella policy too?
If you’re involved in an auto collision, and the other person’s fault is unclear, it may be time to consider getting extra protection.
Umbrella policies offer increased financial compensation for injuries, damage done on behalf of a covered individual that results from accidents occurring outside their control (such as driving into traffic), plus legal fees that will arise.
Do I need flood insurance too?
Floods aren’t just a coastal problem. They can happen anywhere, especially in High-Risk Flood Zones, and many homeowners don’t realize their policy doesn’t cover flood damage either!
If you live near the coast, near a River, or Lake, it may be worth looking into purchasing coverage for your home. Even though these types of storms rarely make headlines, they still cause tons of dollars worth of losses every year.
Allow us to be in your corner when making decisions regarding insurance policies that will keep covered, whether it’s windstorms, fires, hail, or rain.
