What's The Difference Between Actual Cash Value And Replacement Cost Value Insurance Coverage?

Most homeowners have Replacement Cost Value (RCV) insurance coverage for wind and hail damage on their homes, but more and more insurance companies are transitioning their policies to Actual Cash Value (ACV) coverage.

What is the difference and why should you understand it?

Because if you file a claim and you have ACV coverage, you're going to be paying more - maybe a lot more - to repair or replace your damaged property.
