Myth: Homeowners insurance Dwelling Amount is determined by the Market Value of my home

Truth: Your home’s insurance is determined by the cost to rebuilding your home which is determined mainly by square feet, type of home, flooring and finishes in your kitchen and bathroom. Market Value includes land and location which your insurance does not cover. Tobey & Merrill Insurance asks the necessary questions to determine the estimated cost replacement and provides recommendations on what the proper coverage is for YOU!

Manufactured Home

Mobile Homes are handled differently from homes built on-site in insurance because they are not built on a foundation. Working with an experience agent is key to being insured properly. Manufactured homes can depreciate over time so the Dwelling amount and how the claim is paid is the top discussion between YOU and our agents.
