Why you need Earthquake Insurance - California
Homeowners' Policies do not cover earthquake damage.
Owning property in one of the most seismically active regions in the country without the proper insurance means your home and valuables will not be covered in case of an earthquake.
Earthquake risk is just as real as other unexpected perils like wildfire. Without Earthquake insurance, your home has a severe coverage gap.
Growing home value means having more at risk.
According to Core Logic’s 2021 Homeowner Equity Report, California homeowners experienced some of the largest equity gains in the nation in 2021, with an average equity gain of $141k.
Are you willing to risk losing all of the equity you built in just a few seconds of shaking?
The financial impact of natural disasters is on the rise.
California’s earthquake risk is growing, according to FEMA.
FEMA grants don’t take the place of earthquake insurance. Even the maximum assistance provided by FEMA will not cover the full cost of rebuilding a home. It is important to note that FEMA assistance is intended to supplement, not replace, insurance coverage.
