Home insurance FAQs

The cost typically depends on a number of factors including the construction of the home, updates to heating, electrical, plumbing, and roofing, chances of water damage, prior claims, and more. It’s best to budget approximately $800-2600 annually for home insurance costs, but again this will vary from person to person.

There are four basic types of home insurance you can get:

Comprehensive: This provides the most coverage and is the most expensive. It covers your home and its contents against all perils (except the ones specifically excluded from your insurance policy)

Basic or Named Perils - This coverage insures your home, contents and property for perils that are specifically named in your policy

Broad: This is coverage that is right in between a standard policy and comprehensive, covering your home against all risks (minus exclusions) and coverage for your contents against any named risks.

No frills: This provides minimal coverage, and is the cheapest. It is usually for homes that don't meet underwriting standards (doesn't meet normal insurance standards).

And of course, if you feel you need more coverage you can inquire about extra coverages (or endorsements) that will cover certain risks that can affect your area such as:

  • Overland flooding
  • Windstorm damage
  • Sewer backup

A licensed insurance advisor can offer home insurance quotes for you in Newfoundland. If you contact the broker channel they can provide you with more than one option, so you can see comparables in price and insurance coverage!

The cheapest home insurance provider depends on how your situation fits into the formula companies create to evaluate policyholders. Comparing quotes with Surex will allow you to get the cheapest price on home insurance and get you the best insurance coverage for your situation.

How you can save money on home insurance?

Home insurance has many factors when calculating the rates.  Plus, every home insurance company underwriters risk differently, so that is why getting to compare quotes is important. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

advisor

Increase your deductible

Increase your deductible

This is the amount you pay towards an insurance claim, so by offering to pay a higher percentage of a future claim, your insurance company will decrease the cost of your premium. But, keep in mind you will be paying more out-of-pocket when, and if, you ever file a claim.

Bundle your insurance

Bundling always helps you save, whether it's your phone, tv, or internet! So, if you have a car, or any other insurable item, think about going with the same insurance company, who will most likely reward you with a discount!

Shop around

Always compare home insurance quotes to see what all your options are on similar policies. No two policies are the same, so comparing will let you choose what's right for you.
