Provincial differences do exist. Coverage costs vary by province because each province has its own unique challenges. Average insurance in Ontario are not typically impacted by things like earthquake coverage but the same cannot be said of British Columbia, for example. In Canada, overland flooding is a separate area for insurance and insurers are not typically willing to cover this risk. As an example, an average home insurance premium in Alberta is ~$900/year for homeowners. Quebec homeowners pay on average ~$840/year in home insurance costs.
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.
A home insurance policy may include more things than the actual house, it may include personal property inside the home and property, liabilities you may have because of accidents or damages to third party property within your property and reasonable repair costs. It is also possible to include insurance that will cover your living expenses in case your home is destroyed and you have to move elsewhere while it is fixed or rebuilt. This may be handy especially if you live in an area where natural disasters may occur or occur frequently. The bills will mount up very fast if you have to pay for repairs and at the same time pay rent somewhere else. Even liability insurance inside the property is a great idea because you do not know when someone will slip and fall in your wet doorway and you will have to pay for medical care. Home insurance will cover this too.
Person A has pretty good credit and has never filed claims on her home insurance. Person B has pretty good credit and has never filed claims on her home insurance. You would think that a quote from the same company on home insurance would yield similar, if not identical, results, right? Unless they are getting a quote on the same house at the same time, their quotes will most likely be different. Why is that? Why do home insurance rates seem to be so random? Home insurance rates are actually not random at all. Each insurance company doing business in Nevada has to file their rating structure with the Nevada Department of Insurance. The DOI can reject the rating structure if they deem it to be unfair or unlawful. Once the rating system is approved, the insurance company must then apply the rating structure to all potential insureds equally.
