We envision our house as the ultimate refuge, our own slice of paradise. And that goes double in Connecticut (home to 2 cities on Money magazine's 2014 "Best Places to Live" list). However, your home isn't just your sanctuary. In Connecticut, it's also one of your most important investments.
County to county, the Nutmeg State is one of the most desirable to call home, with an average home value of roughly $279,000 — over $100,000 higher than the U.S. average. You worked tooth and nail for your Connecticut castle, so why would you ever dream of leaving your biggest asset vulnerable to storms, accidents, vandalism, or other threats?
Thankfully, homeowners insurance helps you look out for every dollar your abode is worth. If the worst happens and your home suffers damage or is destroyed by a covered risk, dwelling coverage can reimburse you for the full rebuilding cost (up to your limits). That way, restoring your house to its former glory doesn't mean jeopardizing your finances or your family's future.
