It plays a factor, but is not the determining one. Your dwelling coverage is mostly dictated on a price per square foot guideline based on the above ground square footage of your home. That could range from $120/sq. ft. if your home is fairly basic in finish to $250/sq. ft. and up if your home is very customized. Something to keep in mind is dwelling coverage does not include your land value because that does not play a factor in having to rebuild your home in the event of a loss. This is where value of your home and dwelling coverage could greatly differ.
This is always a tricky question and varies based on the customer themselves. When our clients ask whether they should carry full coverage auto insurance or liability only, we always respond back with the question “how much do you feel your car is worth?” Then we follow that question up with “if you were to get in an accident and wreck your car tomorrow, what would that amount of money be worth to you?” These two questions help the client realize the best coverage option themselves. Always keep in mind that if you have a loan on your vehicle, your finance company is probably going to require you carry full coverage insurance With that full coverage requirement the comprehensive and collision deductibles typically can’t exceed $1,000.

Shawn Jaeger on the business team is THE best! I've shopped around a ton for insurance and he has beat the pricing and the coverage hands down! The best part is that he genuinely cares and listens to your needs. With our company we are creating a scaling plan and he is not only quoting to help provide forecasting info for us, he is also helping make a plan based off our needs. Great family guy, honest, and helpful. I'm super pleased and highly recommend. Thanks Shawn!Chrystal Huskey :)
Kate Petree went above and beyond to find me a better policy for both my home and auto. I appreciated her knowledge and how she was able to explain the benefits, etc. of my policies. On a side note, I work in a real estate office and she also quickly assisted a client of mine with his policy. Greatly appreciated!Dawn Mathisen :)
What a great experience. They gave me several options with different companies and did an outstanding job explaining the differences. Most companies just sell you their own companies policy. I was able to get a great policy that was within my budget.Kirk Johnson :)
