Why New Jersey home insurance?
It's not all sun and clear skies in the Garden State. After all, flowers also need rain. On average, New Jersey experiences 120 days of precipitation a year. That means thunderstorms in the spring and summer, ice and snow in the winter. Despite all that, wildfires also occasionally plague the state.
With its position on the East Coast, the state is vulnerable to hurricanes and tropical storms, which sometimes bring flooding. Remember that flood damage is not covered by standard New Jersey homeowners insurance policies. If you live near the coast or near a floodplain, consider purchasing a separate policy through the National Flood Insurance Program.
Home insurance rates in New Jersey
The average New Jersey home insurance rate in March 2014 was $810.00. It appears that rates have decreased since February when average rates in New Jersey were around $817.00. This reflects the annual cost of a standard home policy and does not include flood insurance or earthquake insurance.

Standard coverage for New Jersey homeowners insurance
So what exactly does a standard homeowners insurance policy protect? Probably more than you think. The main types of home insurance coverage are:
- Dwelling: This type covers the structure of your home and any structures attached to it.
- Other Structures: If you have any structures on your property that are detached from your home, they will be protected under your policy.
- Personal Property: Your home's contents receive protection from this portion of your homeowners insurance policy.
- Loss of Use: You can receive help paying for restaurant and hotel bills when a covered event forces you to temporarily move out of your home.
- Personal Liability and Medical Payments: If non-family members sustain injuries on your property, your policy helps you pay either their medical bills (Medical Payments) if they don't take you to court, or legal costs and the final judgment (Personal Liability) if they do. Both payments are subject to the limits of your policy.
