Condo owners have different insurance needs than homeowners because typically a portion of the insurance is provided by the condo association. But each association handles this differently, so understanding who covers what is important for protecting your investment. Let us help you evaluate your condo insurance needs.
Calculate how much condo insurance coverage you need
Break down condo coverage into two parts
- Structural items include anything that is physically attached to the unit such as countertops and flooring.
- Content items include your personal possessions such as furniture and jewelry.
Ask either your realtor, condo builder, or condo association the price per square foot to rebuild your unit. Remember that this price does not include any upgrades you may have added. For example, if you upgraded your kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, be sure to adjust your coverage to include these upgrades.
Personal property coverage
Start by documenting the total original cost and estimated present value of your personal possessions. The Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance offers a Home Inventory Form to help you organize this information.
Keep your coverage up to date
Condo owners must review the most updated version of their bylaws to adjust for any changes in coverage responsibility. Also any remodeling and/or upgrades to your unit can affect your coverage needs.
