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

Location includes the state, ZIP code, and claims history of the area.

Construction

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.

Replacement cost

The replacement cost is the cost of fully rebuilding the same house. This is typically assessed by an appraiser.

Swimming pool

Owning a swimming pool may increase your liability coverage to cover possible injuries.

Home-based business

If you a run a business out of your home your premium may increase to cover the inventory, equipment, and supplies.

Coverage

The type of coverage you choose and how much personal property and liability protection you want your home insurance policy to cover.
