From market value to replacement cost, you’ve got a lot to consider when determining the right coverage amount for your home.
Unless you’re Nostradamus, it’s impossible to predict what the exact cost will be to replace your home in the future. It’s important to have enough coverage to account for unforeseen circumstances. So, aim to purchase an amount of coverage at least equal to the estimated replacement cost.
The amount a buyer would pay for a home, including the land, regardless of how much it would cost to rebuild the home.
The rebuilding cost necessary to replace the entire home. It is NOT the market value of the home, the home's purchase price or the cost of the land, or the outstanding amount of any mortgage loan.
Before you purchase a new home, determine the appropriate amount of coverage needed.
A house needs dusting. Your homeowners policy might need the same. Improvements, inflation, even the building costs in your neighborhood, might have some influence on your estimated replacement costs year-to-year.
When you upgrade or improve your home – like replacing your roof -- you may increase your home's estimated replacement cost. Your State Farm agent can help adjust your policy to meet your home insurance coverage needs. As part of your policy's provisions, you have 90 days to notify us of any remodeling or additions to your home that increases its value by $5,000 or more.
State Farm provides coverage that automatically adjusts each year in an effort to compensate for increases in construction costs in your area. However, certain conditions such as severe weather can increase the demand for labor and materials and raise costs beyond normal inflation. It is important to update your coverage amount each year to keep up with the changing economy.
Market conditions in your area may impact the amount it will cost to rebuild your home if you experience a loss. Replacement cost estimates are influenced by supply of labor, demand for labor and the cost of construction materials. Keeping up with the current market conditions in your area and changing your home insurance coverage amount accordingly, will help you maintain coverage at least equal to 100% of the estimated replacement cost coverage for your home.
Check your policy for specifics, but most homeowners policies do not cover the following types of losses. You might want some additional coverages.

1 Building contractors or professional replacement cost appraisers are a good source for obtaining an estimated replacement cost of your home. Estimates from these sources should reflect your home's features, like those mentioned above. If you are unable to obtain a detailed estimate from these sources, your State Farm agent can discuss other options for estimating the replacement cost of your home.
