The replacement cost on the home is what you are insuring. It doesn't matter how much you purchased the home for. Your agent should have done a replacement cost estimator to find out how much it would cost to replace your home if there was a total loss.

Hi, Willie: Your insurance is probably to cover replacement value of the property.
