Common Homeowners Insurance Questions
How does home insurance work?
Homeowners insurance helps you receive financial assistance in case of an unexpected or unavoidable hazard in your home. By paying for most or all your damage costs, your policy can help you minimize your own cost burden from these hazards.
How much home insurance do I need in Maryland?
Most homeowners policies offer several types of coverage:
Structure Insurance: Use this coverage to rebuild or repair the home after a damaging accident like a fire, severe weather or vandalism. Coverage will usually pay you the home’s replacement cost value (RCV) to repair the home to the way it was before the damage. Choose a coverage limit based at or above the construction costs of the home.
Other Structures Insurance: Property like detached garages, storage sheds or fencing have coverage. Your coverage limit will be a percentage of the total structure insurance.
Possessions Insurance: Coverage will help replace damaged or destroyed possessions. You should choose a limit based on the total value of items you would like to replace. Some policies will only pay cash value, which is an item’s used value, for possessions. However, to cover specialty items you can buy specialty endorsements to add to the policy.
Liability Insurance: If you are at fault for a mistake that harms someone else, like a neighbor, then this coverage can repay them. Coverage will usually pay legal expenses, too.
Loss of Use Insurance: This coverage can pay for certain living expenses if you must temporarily move out after a covered hazard on the property.
Your structure and possessions insurance will include deductibles. Any claim less than the cost of the deductible won’t have coverage. Your agent can help you choose a deductible that is affordable to you.
How much does homeowners insurance cost per year in Maryland?
The average Maryland homeowners insurance rate is $1,200 per year. You will likely have to obtain a policy before you close on a home purchase, since most lenders require you to have coverage.
However, multiple factors can impact your premium, including your home value, the amount of coverage you buy, your credit score, the homes location and your claims history. Most people also qualify for discounts that will still help them keep their coverage affordable, too.

Check your policy documents or call your agent to learn more about when your policy will or won’t be able to help you.
