How much should I insure my home and valuable contents?

In other words, your total sum insured should correspond to the cost of rebuilding of your house and replacing its contents. You may also select to insure your property based on the Market Value (equivalent to the depreciated value of lost / damaged items) or Reinstatement Value basis.
Always check with your insurance agent regarding this matter to avoid being under-insured or paying too much.
