Should my dwelling coverage equal the market value of my home?

Market value of homes in the District of Columbia can be very high and in fact may not reflect the true cost to rebuild a home if a fire destroys it. In states that have high land values it is not uncommon to have a reconstruction cost that is less than the market value of a home. This is the case in D.C. where many homeowners have a property that may be worth $800,000 but the rebuild cost is only $600,000.

Work with your insurance agent to determine the appropriate dwelling coverage to use on your fire insurance policy. Most insurance companies will work with a local builder to determine material and labor costs to demolish and reconstruct a home. Always assume more than less as you never want to be short if a fire destroys the entire home.

Best ways to avoid fire damage in your home

One of the most common insurance claims comes from kitchen fires and this can be completely avoidable with the right tools. If you spend any time in your kitchen cooking you know that a fire is very easy to create. The single most important tool you can have is a fire extinguisher. If you maintain an extinguisher close to the kitchen it will be an easy way to put out a small grease fire and avoid massive damage.

Obviously you want to have smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors but those won't stop fire damage from occurring. Be sure to replace each detectors battery once per year and check them monthly.
