Why South Carolina home insurance?

Life may move slower in South Carolina, but nature's fury doesn't. The state is plagued by many types of natural disasters, including hurricanes, flooding, severe thunderstorms, wildfires, and earthquakes. Yes, even earthquakes. In fact, Charleston is considered a seismic hot spot, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The good news? Homeowners can protect their property against many of these disasters by purchasing a standard home insurance policy.

South Carolinians take note: Flood, earthquake, and some hurricane damage aren't covered by standard policies. Charleston and other coastal regions of the state experience a high risk for earthquakes, so residents should consider purchasing separate protection. Floods also plague the state, so if you live in a flood plain or near the coast, consider a policy through the National Flood Insurance Program.

Home insurance premiums in South Carolina

The average South Carolina Home insurance premium in June 2015 was $837.00. These values reflect average premiums on new sold policies by HomeInsurance.com. A standard home insurance policy will cover the structure of the buildings on the property, the contents of the home, liability for the homeowner(s), medical payments and loss of use expenses.

  • Bundle: One of the easiest ways to save is to purchase your auto insurance and your South Carolina homeowners insurance through the same carrier.
  • Non-smoker: South Carolina experiences wildfire risk, so fire safety is a statewide concern. If no one in your household smokes, you could earn a price break on your home insurance.
  • Fire safety: In addition to non-smoking discounts, providers reward fire-safe homeowners by offering savings for homes with smoke detectors and sprinklers.
  • New home: Tradition may be great, but when it comes to homeowners insurance, newer is better. If your house was built within the last 10 years, it could earn you savings.

Standard South Carolina homeowners insurance coverage

Think that standard South Carolina homeowners insurance quotes only safeguard the structure of your home? Actually, homeowners insurance protects many aspects of your life and property. The main types of coverage in a standard policy are:

  • Dwelling and Other Structures: Dwelling coverage provides the typical protection for the structure of your home from perils such as wind and fire. Any additional structures on your property detached from your house also receive protection from your policy.
  • Loss of Use: When your home becomes so badly damaged in a covered event that you must move out while it undergoes repair, Loss of Use can help with restaurant and hotel bills.
  • Personal Property: The contents of your home receive protection from covered damage or theft with this portion of your policy.
  • Medical Payments: If non-family members sustain injuries on your property but decide not to take you to court, your policy can help pay any medical bills involved.
  • Personal Liability: If non-family members sustain injuries on your property and do take you to court, your policy can help pay legal costs and the final judgment.
