If you have decided to carry only 50% of your property coverage, you will only get 50% of any property loss. So if you buy a retail store and get all the fixtures and inventory at 50% of the actual cost be sure to insurance the fixtures and inventory for 100% of the replacement cost. You won’t get a deal like that again.
If you insure for 50% or 50,000, when 100% would be 100,000, guess how much you will get if you have a 10,000 loss. That’s right 5,000.
