Daily Juice 078 – 3 Common Myths About Renter’s Insurance
Posted on Sep 20, 2016
In the last few episodes, we went over and discussed Renter’s insurance and what this policy cover.
Today I want to mystify 3 common misconceptions people still have about why they need renter’s insurance.
- It’s too expensive – unlike car insurance or homeowner’s, you can get a basic policy for around $15-$20 per month. Is that expensive you? Think about what kind of risk you exposing yourself and your family without this coverage.
- Since I am a renter, will my landlord will cover property damages– the answer is “NO”. Landlord’s policy covers only the building they own. So you are at risk for your own property if it becomes damaged.
- I don’t have enough stuff to need renter’s insurance – A common reason individuals avoid renters insurance is they do not think their belongings are worth the coverage. “Many renters underestimate the value of their possessions and would be surprised by how much it would cost to replace the items they have accumulated.
Think again, before you forgo this coverage.
