Benefits of an Expanded Owner's Policy compared to a Standard ALTA Owner Policy.
With the average premium for an Expanded Policy at only 10% more, the tremendous amount of additional coverage is well worth it! And if the Seller doesn't want expanded coverage, we highly recommend you pay the minimal difference so you can have maximum coverage for your investment.
