Consider the findings reported by independent insurance agent association, Trusted Choice, in a 2009 national survey: "53 million household respondents 'admitted they are probably not taking advantage of all homeowners insurance discounts or said that they simply did not know' about policyholder discounts they likely qualify for." The survey also found that the largest percentage of respondents, about 26%, estimated they save 6-10% on their insurance premiums by using discounts. In fact, many insurance consumers could be saving significantly more-as much as 30%, according to independent insurance agencies, which often shop on behalf of consumers and help them find discounts and compare rates.
Many variables define home insurance costs. There are several factors that can increase your home insurance rate and they are important to consider when purchasing a home. Such factors include fireplaces or wood stoves, swimming pools, oil-based heating systems, old wiring, commercial zoning, old pipes and poor / old roofing. Your garden and trees can have an impact too, since large trees pose a risk of falling on the home. Also your claim history is considered when getting a home insurance policy. If you have a rich history of claims, some insurance companies may consider you to be a high-risk customer resulting either in higher premiums or refusal to issue an insurance policy.
There are different kinds of coverage which go from an HO0 category which covers damage from fire, smoke, lightning, explosion and others which are very general, up to an HO5 category which covers most anything that can happen to your home. An HO5 home insurance policy will cover everything with the exception of items specifically mentioned in it, some of the items most insurance companies will not cover are floods, earthquakes and termite damage. Beware just because you buy this category of home insurance, it does not mean you are covered, the policy you buy must detail specifically what is and is not covered.
Since home insurance can prove to be very valuable to home owners, it is to be expected that many companies offer this particular form of insurance. You should also expect this type of insurance policy to differ depending on many different factors, including the provider itself, the included coverage types, the interest rates, and the overall monthly premiums. There are also several factors that insurance companies take into consideration in order to determine how much your annual percentage rate will be such as your credit history, if the home to be insured is your primary residence, and the other possessions you will also have insured.
