Here are the most commonly used valuation methods used by property insurance companies.

Cost of Replacement:

The replacement cost is the most popular property insurance method.

The cost of replacement does not take into account the value of the property and is calculated by the amount required to employ contractors and buy materials to repair a structure or to build a replacement.

Actual Cash Value:

The actual cash value of a property is yet another well-known property insurance valuation method. The method works similarly to the replacement cost method in that it evaluates the cost of repairing or replacing a home. However, a deduction will be applied to the valuation in order to take into account the depreciation of the property in its original condition. Think of the real cash value as replacement cost less depreciation.
