The insurance coverages you need in Cazadero

Homeowners in Cazadero (or just about anywhere for that matter) should be aware of the different types of protection offered by a homeowners policy. Here is a quick overview:

Dwelling: This portion of your policy will help repair or rebuild your home’s structure if it is damaged or destroyed by a covered peril. Your dwelling coverage levels should be enough to cover the cost of rebuilding your home.

Liability: The liability portion of the policy will help cover any liability issues that come up at your home. It will help pay medical as well as legal bills for any injuries that happen to guests at your home. This can be the result of someone being injured at your home, falling down your stairs for example or if your pet bites someone the liability portion of your policy will step up.

A standard homeowners policy comes with $100,000 in liability coverage but most experts recommend carrying at least $300,000 in coverage. Medical and legal bills can quickly add up so make sure you are carrying enough liability protection.

Personal Property: This coverage will repair or replace your personal possessions if they are damaged or destroyed by a covered peril. The coverage amount for your personal property is 50 percent of your dwelling coverage which means that if you are carrying $300,000 in homeowners insurance on your home, your coverage level for your personal property is $150,000.

Other Structures: This covers other structures on your property such as outbuildings, sheds, barns, detached garages and other structures. This coverage is 10 percent of your coverage levels on most policies so if you are carrying $200,000 on your home, your other structures are protected by $20,000 in coverage. This is all structures combined.

Loss of Use: If your home is so damaged that you can’t live in it while it is being repaired the loss of use portion of your policy will step up. This coverage will help cover expenses you incur due to being out of your home. It will pay hotel bills, restaurant tabs as well as other expenses such as dry cleaning.

Cazadero, CA Dwelling Coverage Estimate

It is important to calculate your dwelling coverage for your home in Cazadero so you know what type of homeowners insurance coverage you need to cover your replacement cost. It is recommended to have enough dwelling coverage to rebuild your home if it was destroyed by a covered peril.

Please remember that replacement cost coverage does not include the cost of the land, only the price to rebuild your home, which is why we like to help customers by answering a few questions that you may have.

What is the average replacement cost coverage in Cazadero, CA?

- The average square footage in Cazadero is around 974 Sq. Ft. which would cost you around $510,500 to replace the home if you base the home on the price to build per square foot of $524.

Minimum Replacement Cost Total: $510,500

Location: Cazadero, California (Sonoma County)

Average Building Cost Per Square Foot in Cazadero: $524 (low end)

Average Square Footage in Cazadero: 974 Sq. Ft.

Home Improvement StatusPrice per Sq. Ft.Dwelling Coverage
None or Very Minor Improvements$524$510,500
Some Additional Upgrades$655$638,125
Major Home Updates or Advancements$786$765,750

The dwelling coverage is calculated by the average cost per square foot ($524) in Cazadero, California times your heated square footage. Which would equal the cost to rebuild your home minus the cost of the property or land. Some homes will have a higher replacement cost due to home improvements like updated kitchens and bathrooms. Other upgrades may include: granite countertops, hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances. The national square foot average to build a brand new home is around 2500 square feet. So if you are looking to build, and your square footage of your new home is 2500, you are looking at a dwelling coverage premium of around $1,637,500 (Media price to build of $655 x 2500 sq. ft.) to cover the cost to rebuild your new home.

What is the difference between actual cash value and replacement cost value?

Homeowners insurance is available in both actual cash value (ACV) and replacement cost value (RCV). Knowing the difference is important:

Actual cash value: When valuing your personal possessions, an actual cash value policy will take depreciation into account. This means that your 10-year-old TV will be basically worthless according to your insurance company. While an ACV policy tends to be cheaper, if you have to make a claim you may be disappointed in your claim payout.

Replacement cost value: A RCV policy will replace your possessions with brand new items of similar quality regardless of how old they were at the time they were destroyed. While RCV policies are slightly more expensive, they are well worth the cost if you have to make a claim.
