Most mortgage lenders in Colorado these days require homeowners to carry home insurance as part of their contracts. But, what if you’ve paid off your home in full and do not have a mortgage? Do you still need home insurance?
Here’s the short answer: legally, you do not need home insurance in Colorado, but there are many reasons why you’ll probably still want a policy. At Integrity First Insurance, we’re here to answer all your questions!
What Does Home Insurance Do?
While mortgage lenders may refer to home insurance as protecting their financial investment, it’s really about protecting yours as well. After all, you’ve already put in a lot of time (and funds) into your home, and this goes tenfold if you’ve paid it off in full and do not have an active mortgage. A good home insurance policy prevents you from having to pay for all damaging events to your property out of your own pocket, therefore making sure your investment is not wasted.
Does it Matter if I Live in an Urban or Rural Area?
Colorado is a very geographically diverse state, and our beautiful land is home to both rural and urban communities. Homes in both areas face different kinds of risks, and they are both still in need of home insurance as a result. Fortunately, insurance providers recognize this and offer different ranges of coverage options as a result.
