Our experienced agents help you to compare different quotes so that you find the most affordable option to cover your empty home.

Vacant Home Insurance Coverage
A vacant home, unlike an occupied home, may be at risk of more dangers that can cause significant losses. Some of the areas that this type of insurance covers include:
- Storm damage
- Malicious damage
- Riot and impact
Note that the quote you get from any of our agencies depends on various factors. The location of your property, possible risks, as well as the amount of coverage you want are some of the factors that affect the price of your policy.

Whenever you rent your property and it stays vacant between tenants, a vacant home policy can cover the loss of income.
Actual Cash Value
When a partial loss or damage occurs, this policy covers a percentage of the cost of replacing or repairing your damaged home. The coverage is usually less the depreciation and other applicable deductibles, depending on the age and condition of your home.
Agreed Loss Settlement
In the event of a total loss of your vacant home, this policy pays you the agreed amount of your home minus the applicable deductibles.
Vacant Land Insurance
Your unoccupied property could also be in the form of land. Vacant land insurance covers any bodily injury or property damage claims. Skeele Agency, Inc. will get you covered so that when people are involved in an incident while on your property you remain protected.
Most importantly, vacant land insurance will keep you financially protected in case someone is injured and involves you in litigation. However, note that this coverage does not extend to damages that may happen to your land.
