How does insurance work for high-value homes?
While some insurers require specialized policies for homes exceeding $750,000 in value, Progressive Home, one of the insurers in Progressive's network of property insurers and part of the Progressive family of companies, accepts homes with values up to $5 million. In addition to the standard exterior inspection, Progressive Home requires an interior inspection for homes with a replacement cost of $850,000 and higher. Based on the inspection results, your policy's dwelling replacement amount may be adjusted to ensure adequate homeowners insurance coverage.
Owners of luxury homes often have insurance considerations that owners of less expensive homes may not have to worry about. If you own a high-value home, here are some ways you can help protect your property, belongings, and assets:
- Replacement cost on your contents: While many standard policies only cover your personal belongings at actual cash value, homeowners can opt for replacement cost for their personal property. Personal property coverage with replacement cost will raise your premium but would pay to replace items damaged in a covered incident without factoring in depreciation.
- Higher liability limits: Homeowners insurance also provides coverage if you're legally responsible for someone else's injuries or damages. If your net worth exceeds your policy's highest limit for liability coverage, you can purchase an umbrella policy to safeguard your assets, typically up to an additional $5 million.
