What we can cover
Homeowners insurance can protect your home against theft, fire, lawsuits, weather damage and other covered losses.
What factors go into determining a homeowners insurance rate?
While the average cost of homeowners insurance varies based on a number of components, these are common factors that insurance companies use to assess risk and determine your rate:
Location includes the state, ZIP code, and claims history of the area.
The materials that were used to build the house. If a custom home is being built additional coverage may be required to cover the construction site.
Age of the house
How new or old the house is, and the upgrades that were made to an older home.
The replacement cost is the cost of fully rebuilding the same house. This is typically assessed by an appraiser.
Owning a swimming pool may increase your liability coverage to cover possible injuries.
If you a run a business out of your home your premium may increase to cover the inventory, equipment, and supplies.
The type of coverage you choose and how much personal property and liability protection you want your home insurance policy to cover.
