Insurance for a Second Home or Vacation Home
If you own multiple properties, either a vacation home or rental property you will need insurance coverage for each of them.
The cost of homeowners insurance for each subsequent property will vary based on its use. Take a vacation home for example; it may have weather-related risks based on its location. Rates will also vary based on the frequency of use. Often time’s second homes are used as income generators. If you are using your second home as a rental property you will need landlord coverage. You should also suggest that your tenant get renters insurance to protect their personal contents.
John Beck Insurance will discuss all aspects of your second home to understand its use and what insurance policy makes the most sense based on your needs. If you are insuring multiple homes we may be able to save you money on bundling your coverage with the same Jacksonville homeowners insurance company.
What Are the Risks Living In Jacksonville?
There are many benefits to live in Jacksonville; however there are also many risks. Jacksonville has one of the highest crime rates in Florida. We also receive a significant amount of severe weather (hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, severe thunderstorms, and wild fires). In 2016 Jacksonville was hit by Hurricane Matthew, which caused over $1.3 billion dollars in damages to homes, businesses, cars and our coastline. Due to the frequency of storms that hit Florida, Hurricane Insurance is required by insurance companies in order to protect your asset from damaging hurricanes.
Though most damage from hurricanes is caused by flooding, hurricane insurance does not cover any flood damage. Flood Insurance is required to cover damages caused by flooding waters. If you would like to further discuss Hurricane and Flood Insurance policies for your home contact John Beck Insurance today (904) 721-3129. One of our highly qualified homeowners insurance agents will walk you through the different options available for your budget.
