In this episode, we went over homeowners insurance deductibles and a quick tip on how to get lower premiums.
For single-family residential homes in the range from $200,000 to $400,000 or so, premiums are going to range from about $600 to maybe $1,200 annually. So, about $50-$100 a month. We’ve had some people asking how they can get the lowest premium possible. For many people, the difference between $50 and $100 can be a big deal.
The key to getting a lower insurance premium is to be okay with having a higher deductible. We’ve recently seen some really low premiums from increased deductibles. In one case by a deductible going from $1,000 to $5,000 the premiums dropped from around $800 down to $350.
This can be a good strategy for people who aren’t particularly claim happy. And the more you make claims the more your premiums go up. So, if you’re not making many claims having a high deductible might not negatively impact you that much. It’s basically there in case of a catastrophe.
Now, we’re not insurance experts, so a disclaimer here, but this is a topic that has come up for us a couple of times in the past weeks and we wanted to make sure you knew.
