This includes your home and other structures on your property. And your stuff (like furniture, electronics, appliances) to a certain limit. And if you're on the hook for injuries anyone's sustained on your property. Learn about specific coverages and protection for your home.
If you own expensive things that surpass your coverage limits (like fine art or an antique grandfather clock), you might want to consider an insurance rider for extra protection.
