Discounts Mean Better Insurance Rates

Bullseye PigThere are many different things that affect the price of your homeowners policy. Some of them are easy to change, while others are more long-term changes that require forethought when you are making major life decisions, like buying a home or deciding where to live.

Some of the relatively easy to change things that will get you discounts on your insurance prices are:

 

  • smoke detectors on each floor of your home
  • security systems, especially if centrally monitored ( this includes fire and burglar alarms)
  • fire extinguishers
  • deadbolts on doors
  • sprinkler systems
  • putting your home and auto insurance with the same insurer
  • home renovations, especially the roof and wiring
  • all residents being non-smokers
  • using electronic funds transfers to pay premium payments or paying in full

 

Long Term Changes Mean Cheaper Insurance

By planning ahead you can ensure that you have good insurance rates. Some factors are things that you need to be constantly vigilant about, while others are things to keep in mind when you are moving. Some of these long-term factors that affect your rate are:

 

  • age of home
  • size of the home
  • type of home construction: masonry, wood, etc.
  • proximity to a fire hydrant and fire station
  • location of home, whether in a city or the country
  • if your home is located in a hurricane, earthquake or other disaster prone area
  • having a good credit rating
