What Affects Home Insurance Prices?

There are many factors that may affect home insurance rates. The following are the most common:
  • Types of Construction
    Frame houses usually cost more to insure that brick houses.
  • Age of House
    New homes may qualify for discounts. Some insurance companies may not insure very old homes or may offer a limited form of coverage.
  • Local Fire Protection
    Your home`s distance from a fire hydrant and the accessibility of your home to your local fire department determines the fire protection classification.
  • Amount of Coverage
    The amount of coverage you buy for your house, contents, and personal liability will affect the price you pay.
  • Deductible Amount
    Your choice of a higher deductible will reduce the price for home insurance.
  • Discounts
    Insurers may offer lower prices for such things as insuring your home and car with the same company and installing dead bolt locks or alarm systems.
