Q:  should i still insure house house after i paid off

A:  Answer is probably yes, but it will depend on the same things any insurance depends on.  What would your situation be if your house burned down– would you be able to replace it without difficulty?  How bad would you feel if it burned down and you couldn’t just rebuild?  How much does your insurance cost?  How painful does that feel?  If you want to get really technical, what’s the probability that something bad is going to happen your house.  Put all that information together and decide whether or not it’s worth paying insurance for the peace of mind.  For housing, it probably is.

    On insuring the house, I’m insuring mine because if it blows down, burns down, or fills with 6+ feet of water, I don’t want to start over. I do have the highest deductible I can get plus savings.

    However, I know a couple who wisely doesn’t insure their house in the Florida Keys, which gets hurricanes just about every year, so the insurance is extremely expensive. But, it’s made of concrete, so better at withstanding fire, winds, and flooding than other houses. So far, all repair bills have cost much less than insurance premiums would have. And, more importantly, it’s their second house (plus they’ve reserved a spot in a retirement village), so if they lost it, they would just sell the land and declare that it was fun while it lasted.
