Options for Columbus Home Insurance

The specific incidents, property and property values covered by your insurance can vary, so be sure to review your homeowner's insurance policy carefully. Homeowner's insurance in Georgia typically covers the following areas:

  • Damage to property, which often includes detached buildings, as well as your home
  • Personal belongings and contents
  • Personal liability for cases where there is an injury or damage to someone else's property
  • Cost of temporary housing if your home is unlivable

Not every policy covers natural disasters, but your home in Columbus may be at risk of flooding or other disasters. Compare policy features and review your specific location in Columbus to see if this is an area of coverage you may wish to add. Columbus home insurance policy features vary between providers, so it's important to explore not only the type of coverage but also the liability limits and deductibles of your chosen policy.

Risks That Affect Owning a Home in Columbus

Columbus' residential streets greet visitors and homeowners with a beautiful blend of classic Victorian homes, relaxed bungalows and spacious condos. Because of the broad range of home styles, ages and features, home insurance rates can vary considerably. Here are just a few risks that are associated with owning a home in Columbus:

  • Approximately 16% of properties may experience severe flooding over the next 30 years
  • Over 90% of properties are at risk of severe wind within the next 30 years
  • In the next 30 years, about 46% of properties are at risk of a wildfire-related incident

These risks, and other factors, may increase your home insurance rates. For example, if your home inspection brought up any questionable issues, or if you have your own outdoor pool, then your rates may be higher than a comparable home without these issues or safety features. Because of these property-by-property differences, it's essential to compare policies for your specific home before turning to a reliable, affordable insurance provider.
