homeowner’s insurance

Owning a home in Portland or Vancouver has its own unique challenges and opportunities. The rain, the sun, and the rain (again!) means that your Homeowner’s policy should be tailored to your property’s unique setting. And since our homes are often our sanctuary in a hectic world it is crucial that we protect them the best we can afford. Regardless of the value of your home in and around the Portland Metro area, a homeowner’s policy is necessary for the protection of your personal property and also your personal liability exposures.

A homeowner’s policy in Washington or Oregon covers not only your dwelling and personal property, it also includes liability insurance that protects you in the event that someone is injured or their property is damaged by you, your family, or your pet. In addition to protection for your home, there are several other types of additional insurance you may purchase that will cover a variety of things such as floods, earthquakes, jewelry, art, antiques, and special collections.

Without a plan, you may be over-insured in some areas and under-insured in others. With that in mind, our Biggs Insurance agents will work with you to customize the best coverage possible to protect the financial security of your family. That’s what we do best.
