The Homeowners Insurance limit can be higher than your home’s market value because it is calculated based on the reconstruction cost rather than the current market value. The insurance aims to cover the cost of rebuilding your home in case of damage or loss, taking into account construction and labor expenses. This approach ensures that you have adequate protection and won’t face substantial out-of-pocket costs in the event of a claim. Despite economic fluctuations affecting market values, insuring your home for its reconstruction cost provides a more accurate and comprehensive level of coverage.
