It is always a good idea to keep an inventory of your personal possessions. There are numerous apps that help make this tedious task easier.

Liability: This portion of the policy protects you if a person is injured at your home. It will help cover their medical bills as well as lost wages and funeral costs if necessary. It will also help pay your legal bills if your injured guest decides to sue you.

In addition, the property liability section of your policy will pay for damage you do to another person’s property. As an example, if your child puts a baseball through the neighbor’s window, your liability coverage will pay to replace the window.

Loss of Use: This coverage will help pay bills that you incur if you are not able to live in your home after it is damaged by a covered peril. As an example, if your home burns to the ground you may have to move into a hotel or rental while it is being rebuilt. This coverage will help cover bills such as the hotel, restaurant, and even dry cleaning.

Flood and Earthquake coverage: As mentioned above, a standard homeowners policy excludes coverage for flood and earthquake damage. If your home is at risk of flooding or earthquake damage you will need to purchase a separate policy to be fully protected.

Santa Rosa, CA Dwelling Coverage Estimate

It is important to calculate your dwelling coverage for your home in Santa Rosa 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 Santa Rosa, CA?

- The average square footage in Santa Rosa is around 1,044 Sq. Ft. which would cost you around $547,056 to replace the home if you base the home on the price to build per square foot of $524.

Minimum Replacement Cost Total: $547,056

Location: Santa Rosa, California (Sonoma County)

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

Average Square Footage in Santa Rosa: 1,044 Sq. Ft.

None or Very Minor Improvements$524$547,056
Some Additional Upgrades$655$683,819
Major Home Updates or Advancements$786$820,583

The dwelling coverage is calculated by the average cost per square foot ($524) in Santa Rosa, 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.
