Homeowner’s Insurance Rates Depend On

The city of Frisco has a population of 159,920, and a medium home price of $383,000. According to Zillow.com, Frisco home values have gone up 6.2% over the past year, with predictions that they will rise 3.0% within the next year. The homeowner's insurance rates for this city depend on the following:

 

  • The Location of the House - If you live in an area prone to natural disasters, you may pay a higher premium rate.

  • The Amount of Coverage - How much coverage you choose has a significant impact on the price of the policy. If you have valuable items such as antiques or expensive jewelry, they probably won't be covered in your general homeowner's insurance policy. If you feel you may need more coverage, you may want to consider High-Value Home Insurance. 

  • The Deductible Amount - Your choice of a higher deductible will reduce the price for homeowners insurance.

  • Neighborhood Crime - Discounts are usually offered if you purchase a home security system and have it connected. 

  • The Age of the House and Roof - A New home may qualify for discounts, whereas older homes may not qualify for preferred programs.

  • The Construction Methods - Frame houses usually cost more to insure than brick. 

  • Fire Safeguards - It will help your home insurance policy rate if you live close to a quality firehouse. Your home’s distance from a fire hydrant also has an effect on your rate. 

  • Claims and Credit History -  If you have filed claims in the past, your premium is likely to be higher. Companies may also take into account your credit score when deciding what to charge.

  • Pools and Trampolines - Can cause your insurance premiums to increase, as you may be liable if people are hurt while using them, whether you gave them permission or not.

  • Pets - Dog owners may face limited or no coverage if their pet’s breed is considered aggressive.
