Why buy renters insurance? Richmond, VA

July 20th, 2015

Should you get renters insurance?  From the obvious answer that it’s super cheap to cover your items when you are renting a home or apartment, it can actually save you money when you buy a home.  See the following from one of our preferred Insurance carriers, Brett Lynes with Aegis National Insurance Agency:

If you don’t already have a renter’s insurance policy for the property and liability coverage it provides, you might want to get one for the premiums it can save you on your new homeowner’s insurance policy! One of the factors many insurance carriers consider when rating a new homeowner’s policy is whether or not the prospective insured has prior property insurance. With some companies, prior property insurance (including renter’s insurance policies) can qualify the customer for a more preferred rating tier. With others, a lack of prior property coverage means you aren’t even eligible for one of their homeowner’s products. To get the best possible deal, you want access to the preferred rates of as many top companies as possible. Even in Virginia, where insurance rates are some of the lowest in the nation, having a renter’s policy already in place could save you as much as $50 per month on your new homeowner’s policy. Considering that renter’s insurance policies are usually quite affordable – in many cases less than $20 per month – it’s a pretty cost-effective way to get a better deal on your homeowner’s policy! Of course, rules, rates, and potential savings vary from one company to another, so it’s important to discuss your specific situation with a licensed insurance professional.

For more information on this topic or with other general homeowner’s insurance questions, contact Aegis National Insurance Agency at (804) 818-6500 or toll free at 844-GO-AEGIS.
