It is important to understand the average home insurance cost and all the factors that impact it. On average, homeowners pay $780 for home insurance in Ontario but factors such as location, replacement costs, coverage and riders, such as flood or jewelry coverage, can have a major impact on the coverage. Renters can also purchase insurance, and the rates are generally cheaper for renters than they are for owners. Although the market value of your home does not directly impact what you pay for insurance, it can give you an idea of what you can expect to see in terms of costs - or at least what you should plan and budget for. A home valued at under $300,000 usually sees an average cost in Ontario of $702 a year, and homes in the higher brackets, for example between $300,000 and $700,000, can expect to pay $1,000 (approximately $924) but again, the final numbers will include other factors.
A deductible is the amount of money you state you will agree, in advance, to fund as part of the settlement when you file a claim. Subject to your claim being successful, your insurer will make the remainder of the payment to balance your claim; or a sum as mutually agreed. Claims can only be made based on the terms of your homeowner policy. You may be asking a question like 'What is the effect of increasing my deductible?' Increasing your deductible gives you the opportunity to save a lot of money on premiums. For instance, you can save up $20 or more when you have a deductible that's a sum of say $2,000 or more. Also, remember that in areas like Florida, and some parts of Louisiana, you might be asked to have different deductibles for different forms of damage. Such as windstorm damage as a result of hurricanes. Huge discounts are often offered by insurers; this is due to the fact that clients with high limit deductibles rarely file for claims. No matter the size of deductible you choose, endeavor to keep that sum of money safe. If ever the need arises for you to file a claim, your money is then always available towards a repair or replacement.
Home insurance policies change for different types of properties. Tenant insurance (also called renter's insurance) only covers the contents of a rented house and, depending on the policy, liability. The homeowner's coverage, on the other hand, is focused on the insurance of the building itself to ensure protection in instances that are related to natural hazards, fire or earthquake, or due to unlawful human activities like vandalism. Home insurance covers the rebuild value of a dwelling, but not the market value, which is, in fact, higher. That is why, when the property has undergone some damages, the insurance provider will carry the rebuilding costs so the policyholder is able to restore a corresponding property. This chart features the average premiums for rented and homeowner's insurance in Alberta and Canada. As the chart shows, owned property insurance is, on average, higher than the renter's policy.
