Miami, FL Dwelling Coverage Estimate

It is important to calculate your dwelling coverage for your home in Miami 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 Miami, FL?

- The average square footage in Miami is around 2,213 Sq. Ft. which would cost you around $369,632 to replace the home if you base the home on the price to build per square foot of $167.

Minimum Replacement Cost Total: $369,632

Location: Miami, Florida (Miami Dade County)

Average Building Cost Per Square Foot in Miami: $167 (low end)

Average Square Footage in Miami: 2,213 Sq. Ft.

Home Improvement StatusPrice per Sq. Ft.Dwelling Coverage
None or Very Minor Improvements$167$369,632
Some Additional Upgrades$209$462,040
Major Home Updates or Advancements$251$554,448

The dwelling coverage is calculated by the average cost per square foot ($167) in Miami, Florida 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 $521,875 (Media price to build of $209 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.
