Homeowner's Insurance for Reverse Mortgages|
Homeowner's insurance (also called "hazard insurance") is required and should be equal to at least the replacement cost of the home you want to purchase. Replacement cost coverage ensures that your home will be fully rebuilt in case of a total loss.
Most home buyers purchase a homeowner's insurance policy that includes personal liability insurance (though this personal liability insurance is not required) in case someone is injured on their property; personal property coverage for loss and damage to property due to theft or other events; and dwelling coverage to protect the house against fire, theft, weather damage, and other hazards.
If the home is near water, you may be able to get flood insurance as part of your homeowner's protection. In fact, it may be required in some areas, so check with your real estate professional or an approved lender for further information.
Seek out and compare rates from several insurance companies before making your final decision.
