Is my art covered?

There are four main reasons why you should consider taking up Florida homeowners insurance coverage. Keep reading below to find out what exactly is covered by a policy. 

1. For property coverage – Homeowners will cover your personal property and physical structures around your home. So since you are here at Warner Sallman, we know you love art. Personal property coverage will be able to cover your art inside your home. Remember though that this is up to a certain limit. If you think you will need additional coverage be sure to speak to an agent. 

2. For liability coverage – let us say, unfortunately, a person who is not under the cover is injured and dies in your premises. Homeowners coverage caters for that legal responsibility. It also covers injuries and damages that may befall on an individual or property that is next to your home. For example a tree from your compound falling on a vehicle parked in the slot near your home. You do not have to take the responsibility; the cover caters for that.

3. For the satisfaction of mortgage lenders – in case you have a mortgage, most banks and other financial institutions that lend money, requires you to have an insurance cover for it before listing them on the policy.

4. Other expenses – some other expenses may arise when a destroyed home, damaged as a result of any form of disaster, is under repair. Such costs may include staying in a hotel or at a rental apartment during the fix-ups. The insurance policy only requires an individual named in it to live in a hotel or apartment.

The premiums on homeowner covers get determined by the worth of the home and the structures or contents within it. The high standard of living in Florida and other parts of the world, many people choose not to get a Florida homeowners insurance coverage. However, “prevention is better than cure” since the cost of replacement is obviously higher compared to the premiums you will pay on the cover every month.

With all the above in mind, every homeowner should consider taking up Florida homeowners insurance coverage. You will need a policy in order to protect yourself financially and to protect your home. Why take the risk?

This one is The Master Healer. Who knows, maybe the powerful image of that painting contributed to my call to ordained ministry years after the fact.

A friend in Jesus

by Liz Graham

I had a beautiful picture over my bed as a little girl. It was a child, Jesus, sitting on his mother’s lap looking out over the distance. It was so peaceful, and it made me feel Jesus was my friend. This was in the early 1960s. this week, as I emptied my parents’ home as my dad is about to die, I found the picture stored in the attic. It is not in great shape but reminds me of being a trusting child. My mom has been gone for almost 20 years and my dad will join her soon.
