Serving Alberta and B.C., the team at Krywolt Insurance are experts at finding you the best coverage to protect your most valuable asset: your luxury home. When you have a high value home, you know you need more coverage than what a standard home insurance policy can provide. High value home insurance protects your home by offering enough financial remuneration to cover the replacement cost (or replacement value) of your home. This is the amount of money it would cost to recoup your losses following an insured peril, such as a fire.
Smart luxury homeowners choose to invest in high end home insurance because an average home insurance policy won't offer enough to cover the replacement cost of your upscale residence. High value home insurance policies in Alberta, on the other hand, offer additional coverage and higher limits.
Your policy will be handcrafted to suit your unique needs. When it comes to luxury homes, we know how important it is to craft a policy that is geared toward the distinct qualities within your home. The policy will also take into account your valuable possessions, or any rare collections that you might have.
There are a number of qualities that render your high value home insurance policy unique from a traditional homeowners policy, such as:
Typically, high value home insurance is needed for homeowners who own a luxury home. This means your property is of high value, includes costly contents and has unique, custom features or historical value. As a rule of thumb, homes that have a replacement cost of $750,000 or more are usually considered high value homes. This not only includes the cost of the property, but also any valuable items held within. This could include jewellery, antiques, collectibles or a wine collection valued at more than $25,000.
However, with that in mind, different insurance companies have different requirements regarding what constitutes as a high value home. For example, one insurer may consider a home luxury status if it is valued at $750,000, whereas another insurance company might only consider a home upscale enough to qualify for high end insurance if its replacement value is $1.5 million or more. A dedicated Krywolt Insurance broker will be able to help you find the right insurance company for your home, and get you the best coverage possible at a competitive quote.
Since your luxury home insurance policy can be tailored to your unique needs, this offers up a lot more options than standard policies. There are many types of coverage available for upscale homes, including cash settlements for the building and contents, worldwide coverage, and a variety of add-ons to cover additional properties you may own, such as a secondary residence or summer cottage. Not to mention, you may also qualify for certain discounts if you are a luxury homeowner. A few of these coverage options and discounts are included below.
Do you have questions about high value home insurance in Alberta? At Krywolt insurance, we want to give you peace of mind. That's why our brokers are available to speak with you anytime. We're happy to answer any questions that you might have. We've also taken the time to answer some commonly asked questions below.
Standard home insurance policies don't offer the same level of coverage that a high end policy does. Thus, it can't meet the needs of luxury homes, condos or rental property residences. High value insurance offers higher policy limits to account for a range of property and possessions, such as landscaping, jewellery, wine collections, antiques and fine arts. It also offers greater coverage for increased construction costs after a claim because of changed bylaw requirements. Perhaps one of the greatest differences between the two types of insurance is that high end coverage allows for full cash value payouts, without depreciation. This is not something available with a standard homeowners policy.
You wouldn't want to wind up not being able to recover the financial value of lost, stolen or damaged luxury items—let alone be unable to rebuild your treasured home following a loss—because you are not adequately covered. It's for this reason that Albertans who live in luxury residences choose high value home insurance. The risk is simply too great. Besides, while you may be able to afford it, do you really want to have to pay thousands of dollars to recoup your lost wine collection, or to source the rare marble used in your kitchen counters all over again? Don't suffer significant financial losses because you failed to get insurance coverage that has a high enough limit to replace the actual value of your home and possessions.
While your Krywolt Insurance broker will be able to let you know if you should purchase high value home insurance, there are a few questions you can ask yourself to establish if you need it to begin with. If you answer yes to the following, then reach out to your broker at your earliest convenience to inquire about luxury home insurance.
