There are many elements that can affect the cost of your homeowners insurance premium. A few of the many things to consider before you choose a homeowners insurance policy are:
Age and structure type of the property – If your home is older it may cost more to insure. Homeowners insurance agents see older homes as more of a liability, as they are more likely to need repairs, which is why your premium might increase.
Location of your home – In the event that your home is near the water, near a fire station, or in an area where it it more easily susceptible to damage, your premium could increase.
Personal credit – Your personal credit history is a well-known factor that can affect the price of your premium. The better your credit, the less you’ll end up paying.
Smoking habits – In most cases, smokers end up paying more for their homeowners insurance, as cigarette smoke can cause damage to the integrity of the home.
Preventative devices – By installing a smoke detector or burglar alarm, you can end up paying less for your monthly premium.
Your past claims – If you have a history of claims on your homeowners insurance policy, you might end up paying a higher monthly premium.
