How much is your renters insurance?

We are in a transition between owning homes, we are going to be moving across the country soon. Anyways I was just wondering what to expect price wise.

  • 25.00/month roughly. That gives up 25 thousand coverage, hotel if necessary.

  • I had to have renter's insurance in the last apartment I lived in. It was required. I guess it's to cover your belongings if something happens like your neighbor burns down your apartment. That happened several times in the last apt complex. Or, if something or yours gets damaged because the roof leaks or something, it's covered. Things like that.

  • $72 a year. It has a $500 deductible. We got it through Allstate, the same company that we have our car insurance with. I think it's usually cheaper to keep them together.

    I think it is a necessity. The landlord has insurance on the property, but not your stuff. Think about it, computers, TVs, beds, clothes... for most of us everything we own minus the car is in our apartment. If a fire or a flood happens, or even if you just get robbed you need insurance to cover that.
