Homeowner's Insurance Policies
If you are like most people, your home is your most significant investment. Emotionally, your home may be where you grew up, brought your child home from the hospital or where you welcome friends and family. The 2010 census found that on average 25% of a person's total wealth is found in their home equity. With so much invested, you want to make sure that your home is protected.

The other portion of insurance policy covers your liability should someone be injured on or because of your property. This is referred to as your liability coverage.
