Some homes may not be eligible for full coverage, and sometimes a customer may request just the basics. This product helps you cover most occupancies – a full-time home, rental property, seasonal home, vacant property, and even non-residential structures. The flexible format makes it easy to insure the building and protect a customer from loss.

Other programs to consider
For a seasonal home or rental property in good to great condition (single to 4-family), look at the Dwelling Special program. It offers open peril coverage and replacement cost protection.
In a few states, an owner-occupied or seasonal home (single or two-family) in good condition can also be quoted in the Homeowners FLEX program. It offers a package of protection like you find in an HO-3 policy.
This product or individual options may not be available in your state. Check the program manual for coverage definitions, limits, conditions, limitations, and exclusions.
