What home insurance do I need in Waco?

Homeowners insurance is not required by law in Waco, but it's almost always required as a condition of taking out a mortgage. If you are financing your home, you will likely need to purchase coverage.

Homeowners in Waco should purchase enough coverage to pay for the repair or replacement of their home and its contents if the house is completely destroyed. You should purchase a policy that covers the full value of the structure, as well as the value of your personal property including furniture, electronics, clothing and appliances.

We also encourage you to buy as much liability insurance coverage as you can afford. That's especially true if you have a high net worth or often partake in potentially risky activities, such as owning a large dog or frequently having guests over for parties.

Common natural disasters in Waco

There are two types of natural disaster that Waco residents should be prepared for: wind damage and flooding. There is a history of tornadoes striking Waco, and while most homeowners insurance policies cover wind damage, you should understand whether you're protected and what to do if a windstorm is predicted.

Waco residents, especially those who live near the Brazos River and Lake Waco, should also be aware of flood risk. While the risk of flooding in Waco is not as high as in coastal Texas cities like Houston, flooding is still a significant possibility for many parts of McLennan County, where Waco is located.

Unfortunately, flood damage is not covered by standard homeowners insurance. Waco residents who live in low-lying areas — especially if they are in a FEMA-designated Special Flood Hazard Area — to purchase flood insurance if they are not already required to. You can get coverage either from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) or a private insurance company.
