genius guy,i think its a good idea to get homeowners insurance. If you own the house outright, then no it is not required but if you have a mortgage, then the institution that made the loan most likely does require it. They already have laid out the monies for the real estate they do not pay to insure it also. You can add your taxes and insurance into an escrow account the will include those expenses with your mortgage payment, that you pay monthly so as at the end of the year you do not have to come up with two lump sums of big money. The bank or mortgage company see's to it that not only do your monies go to mort. but the other two as well...It makes things easier...

This is why you need an insurance agent and not a 1-800 insurance company to advise you on your needs and sell you the proper policies.
