Auto insurance is one of the most popular types of broad personal insurance. This is mainly because some form of auto insurance is required by each state, with laws that vary among states. Even those who rent or lease automobiles are required to have some sort of auto insurance coverage in place to protect from injuries and accidents that may occur on and off the road.

While homeowners insurance is not necessarily required in all areas, it is highly recommended. This is especially true for homeowners who live in certain areas that may present more risks to home damage, such as areas where hurricanes or earthquakes are more common than other areas. Apart from the value of the home itself, homeowners insurance is an important factor to protect all of the valuable belongings that are kept inside the home.
Homeowners insurance can help to protect from potential issues such as:
- Loss or damage from fires or lightning
- Vandalism and other types of malicious mischief
- Snow, ice, or sleet
- Falling objects that cause damage
- Damage caused by faulty or damaged domestic appliances
- Theft or damage of personal belongings, such as jewelry, antiques, and art
