Default Under insured???

What is the proper amount of insurance needed on a home? I have a 200K home where the house is insured for 160K and contents at 40K. The land where the house sits has a value - 40K?
I just received my notice from the MS Windstorm UA and the cost has doubled; I am going to reevaluate my insurance levels - any advice?

Your insurance agent should help you withthe amounts.

When I bought my house i was told there was a forumula so many dollars per square foot for damages. There was a minimum amount so technically I am over insured.

I'd suggest liabilty at several times your total property value but again an agent can advise you best. Shop around as much as possible.

Good luck!
