Why Buy Earthquake Insurance?

Why Buy Earthquake Insurance?

By Cliff Hockley, President, Bluestone & Hockley Real Estate Services

Many of our clients have asked us over the years if they should purchase earthquake insurance. This is a difficult question to answer specifically because every property is constructed differently (i.e. wood, masonry, concrete, metal) and is located on different soil(i.e. clay, rock, sand). The height of the building also makes a difference. Imagine the impact on a one story building versus a thirty story unreinforced masonry building. The age of the building, and the code requirements in every state and city, need to be taken into consideration as well.

Perhaps you are near certain types of businesses that may discourage people who are driving by from driving in.  The issue of “location,” is obviously a concern based on the following question:
