As 2016 draws to a close, you’re may be taking time to reflect back on the past year. You’ll remember the things that went well—as well as the things that didn’t—and strive to do better in 2017. But this process isn’t just for New Year’s resolutions. You should also take this opportunity to review your family’s finances. And though you may not think about it, insurance is an important part of any solid financial plan. This is especially when it comes to your home. Here at the Gill Agencies, a Rock Hill, SC insurance provider, we’d like to offer you some advice as you review your home insurance policy for the coming year.
The main thing to think about is whether you’ve made any changes or upgrades to your home over the past year. Have you added more space, expanded your outdoor living areas, or done a big remodeling job? If so, your contractor or banker probably reminded you to increase your home insurance policy. But the same is true for smaller upgrades to your home. Perhaps you updated the flooring, countertops, or cabinets. These may have increased the overall value of your home. Whenever this happens, you need to up your insurance accordingly.
