Home Insurance in Illinois

When you buy a home, it is important to purchase a home insurance policy that will protect against the possible threats and risks that you may face. There are extreme differences between the winter weather conditions and the summer weather in Illinois. Due to the potentially dangerous and harsh winter weather, it may be necessary to ensure that your policy will protect against storm damage, wind and snow. An independent agent from an agency like the Martin Insurance Team can help you identify your needs and find the right policy for your family and goals.

Simple Coverage

A basic home insurance policy is designed to address common concerns that may arise. Generally, you will have coverage for liability risks, fires, damages from a storm or similar concerns. Most policies will clarify the specific situations that are covered or will provide a list of specific exclusions from the basic plan.

Simple coverage will not usually protect against floods, earthquakes or similar natural disasters unless you add to the policy. The additional coverage that is appropriate can depend on your concerns and the risks that are associated with the location of your home.

Comparing Rates and Options

Buying a policy for your home may depend on several factors. In many cases, a mortgage provider will set a minimum standard that you must follow until the mortgage is paid. Otherwise, you will need to determine the coverage that you want personally. An independent agency like the Martin Insurance Team allows you to compare rates and options through an online tool. You can also talk to an agent directly for advice or recommendations.

There are a variety of policies that can help protect your home and property. To learn more about your policy options, contact us to speak to an agent today.

Why work with Martin insurance:

  • Insurance is unlike any other product out there - you pay for it and hope you never have to use it. And that makes paying more than you need to that much more uncomfortable.
  • With a policy from Martin Insurance Team, you can keep your insurance costs low with the wide variety of discounts we offer. Keep in mind, not all discounts are available in every state. The best way to get all that you qualify for is to get an insurance quote specific to your area.
  • You can get a rough "ballpark" insurance quote from many companies online, but talking with an agent allows you to ask questions and get a quote for coverage that matters most to you. An agent can prepare a quote that details the coverage, deductibles (your portion of a loss) and cost (premium) of your insurance policy.
