Hanover Home Insurance Coverage Types

Homeowners insurance comes in a variety of different types, each one designed for a specific type of home. Let’s have a quick look at a couple of different policy types that are available to you:

HO-3: This is the most common type of insurance policy and is considered the “standard” when it comes to homeowners insurance. These policies cover damage from all perils except those that are specifically excluded in the policy wording. Flood and earthquake damage are always excluded on a HO-3 policy (or any standard homeowners policy for that matter) so if you are in a flood prone area you will need a separate flood policy which we will be happy to help you put in place.

HO-8: These policies are designed to insure an older, more vintage home. Many older homes have very detailed, very expensive to replace features such as plaster walls, hand carved railings and even stained glass windows. In addition, they often come with ancient plumbing and electrical systems that require updating to meet code. These issues often make it difficult to find an insurer willing to write a HO-3 policy on these kinds of houses.

Due to all of these types of expenses, an HO-8 policy pays out an actual cash value, which takes deprecation into account. This can up your out of pocket costs when filing a claim but if you are living in or buying an older home, this may be your only option.

H0-4: These policies are designed for renters and more commonly referred to as renters insurance. A HO-4 policy will protect all of your personal property up to your policy limits and also offers liability coverage in the event that someone is injured in your apartment. This type of coverage is an extremely affordable and something you should definitely have in place.

Regardless of which type of policy you need, we can help you find a great policy at an affordable price. Our agents will help guide you through the entire process of shopping for a new policy and help you evaluate your current coverage to make sure you are fully protected. We will also do a full discount review to make sure you are receiving all available discounts.

Hanover, CT Dwelling Coverage Estimate

It is important to calculate your dwelling coverage for your home in Hanover 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 Hanover, CT?

- The average square footage in Hanover is around 886 Sq. Ft. which would cost you around $155,000 to replace the home if you base the home on the price to build per square foot of $175.

Minimum Replacement Cost Total: $155,000

Location: Hanover, Connecticut (New London County)

Average Building Cost Per Square Foot in Hanover: $175 (low end)

Average Square Footage in Hanover: 886 Sq. Ft.

Home Improvement StatusPrice per Sq. Ft.Dwelling Coverage
None or Very Minor Improvements$175$155,000
Some Additional Upgrades$219$193,750
Major Home Updates or Advancements$263$232,500

The dwelling coverage is calculated by the average cost per square foot ($175) in Hanover, Connecticut 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 $546,875 (Media price to build of $219 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.
