How much does homeowners insurance cost?

Home insurance rates depend on several factors, including:

  • Your ZIP code

Average home insurance costs are often higher in states that see increased risk of loss due to natural disasters. It’s possible to find affordable home insurance that doesn’t require sacrificing coverage or raising your deductible: all it takes is comparing rates—including bundling home and auto insurance.

What determines your home insurance rates?

There is no set average home insurance cost, so everyone’s homeowners insurance rates may look different. Factors that affect homeowners insurance premiums can include:
  • Location of your home
  • Your chosen deductible amount
  • Your marital status
  • Your roof’s condition
  • Your credit score
  • Your claims history
  • Age of your home
  • Any renovations done to your home
  • The replacement cost of your home
  • Home security systems and safety features

Homeowners Insurance Discounts

Home insurance discounts make it easy to save on home insurance. There are plenty of discount options that you can qualify for, including:

Multi-Policy Discount

When you combine your home insurance with your auto insurance policy, you can earn a multiple policy discount, also known as bundling. Customers who bundle with SelectQuote save, on average, $757.*

New Construction or New Home

You could potentially qualify for a discount if you recently built your home or bought it within the past 12 months.

Home Security System Discount

Installing a home security system or other security measures in your home can earn discounts from certain carriers. This could include smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, leak and water sensors, and more.

How You Pay

Paying for your home insurance policy in full, choosing a higher deductible, or signing up for paperless billing are just a few examples of ways insurance carriers offer discounts.

Bundle Home Insurance to Save Money

One of the biggest ways you can save money on home insurance is by combining your insurance policies, also known as bundling insurance. Home and auto insurance bundles have several benefits besides the amount of savings. The advantage of working with one carrier instead of multiple means less hassle and a more streamlined claims process. SelectQuote helps save customers who bundle their home and auto insurance policies $757 on average.**

  • Home and Auto Insurance Bundle: When you bundle your home and auto insurance, you have separate policies but get discounts based on buying coverage from one carrier.
  • Home and Umbrella Insurance Bundle: Bundling home and umbrella insurance allows you to buy coverage to protect both your home and yourself from liability in the event of an accident or injury on your property.
  • Home and Toy Insurance Bundle: If you own multiple recreational toys, such as RVs, jet skis and ATVs, a home and toy insurance bundle can help you save money on the cost of insuring them under one blanket policy.
  • Home and Natural Disaster Insurance Bundle: If you live in an area with increased risk of natural disasters such as wildfires, flooding, mudslides, hurricanes or other severe weather, you may need additional insurance coverage. A bundled home and natural disaster policy can reduce the cost of total home coverage for these hazards.
  • Multiple Home Insurance Bundle: Bundling can save you significant money if your home insurance needs include buying a policy for multiple homes. Whether your second home is a vacation home or a rental property, a multiple home insurance bundle can help reduce the cost.

Homeowners Insurance Coverage:

  • Fire
  • Water damage
  • Theft
  • Damage from weather
  • Leaking, frozen and burst pipes
  • Personal injury occurring on your property

  • Water/sewage backup

Other Types of Property Insurance Coverage

Umbrella Insurance

Umbrella insurance is a way to safeguard yourself and your assets when an accident occurs and you’ve exhausted the limits of your home insurance and auto insurance.

Renters Insurance

Renters insurance typically covers liability and personal property, which can help pay to replace your belongings if they’re stolen or damaged by a covered risk. Many landlords and properties require renters to have rental insurance.

Condo Insurance

While your condo association’s master policy will cover the damage that happens to your condo’s building, grounds or other external features, condo insurance will make sure your personal possessions, appliances and other pieces of the unit are protected.

Flood Insurance

Since flood damage is often not covered under standard home insurance policies, flood insurance will cover direct physical loss from floods and losses resulting from flood-related erosion. It will also help cover the costs of repairs or replacing belongings such as clothing, furniture, electronics and more.

Earthquake Insurance

Since damage from an earthquake isn’t typically covered under home and renters insurance policies, earthquake insurance can cover harm to your house, personal belongings, and additional living expenses (ALE) or loss of use, which are the costs to live somewhere else if you have to evacuate or repair your home as a result of an earthquake.

RV Insurance

RV insurance covers many of the risks auto insurance does, including collision, comprehensive and liability coverage. You can also purchase additional protection for personal belongings on board, equipment and attached accessories such as awnings and satellite dishes.

Boat Insurance

Boat insurance insures your boat against damage and loss caused by common risks such as sinking, fires, storms, theft and collision.
