Calculating Premiums for Home Insurance in Balch Springs, TX
Insurers use a specific set of calculations to determine how much your home insurance premium will be. Usually, this is based on how much risk the carrier would take on to insure your home. So the higher the risk, the higher you can expect your premium to be.
Carriers usually look at a few things to assess your home’s risk. Your carrier will first look at property-specific factors such as the size and age of your home, as well as any add-ons such as a swimming pool. Regional factors play a huge role as well, so things such as average home value in your neighborhood, crime rates, and common weather perils (ex: tornadoes) in your area.
If you’re located in a high-risk flood zone or on a flood plain, that’s deemed a higher risk to insure, therefore, a higher premium. Likewise, you live in an area where crime is higher than in other areas, your premium will be higher than a home maybe 10 minutes away.
However homeowners are not left with no help to lower their premiums, insurance carriers offer all sorts of discounts to help their policyholders save. Common discounts come from installing a security system, motion-sensor lights, and home surveillance cameras! And if you have a high credit score, that can help your rates as well.
