Insurance companies tend to offer policies based on the size of the home in terms of square metres. Then further options are available that affect costs. For instance, if the property has large windows, then glass insurance will be advised.
The price of insurance coverage depends on location and type of property. If the place being insured is a flat or apartment, then the floor that it is located on may have a bearing on the coverage. And if the building is being renovated, the company wishes to be informed of scaffolding due to the increased likelihood of a break in.
The choice of companies available to expats is vast, all earning hefty incomes.
