How Much Does Home Insurance Cost? Get Your Personalized Estimate


According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, the average home insurance premium for a standard policy in 2017 was about $1,200, or roughly $100 per month. That being said, a number of factors will influence the cost of your policy, including:

  • Where you live: The cost of home insurance can vary significantly depending on the region, state, and city you live in.
  • The age of your home: Older homes often come with higher insurance price tags.
  • How much coverage you have: Generally speaking, the more coverage you purchase, the higher your monthly premiums will be.
  • Your deductible: The higher your deductible, the lower your monthly premiums will be; the lower your deductible, the higher your monthly premiums will be.
  • Prior insurance claims: If you have a history of making claims, this can be held against you, just as it might if you were buying car insurance.

Of course, this isn’t a comprehensive list; insurance carriers use many factors to set your prices.
