How much does home insurance cost in Alaska?

A home insurance policy in Alaska costs an average of $1,195 a year. This is 46% lower than the national average homeowners insurance rate of $1,903 a year.

Your final home insurance quote is based on multiple factors. These include:

  • Your ZIP code
  • The age of the house
  • Construction materials used
  • Your insurance claim history

A standard home insurance policy is pretty much the same regardless of where you buy it. Why the difference in prices then? Home insurance companies put different weights on the various factors that make up your premium. For example, your claim history may be considered a bigger risk factor to one insurer than another. Use this to your advantage and compare quotes from multiple providers to get the best, cheapest home insurance policy.

Your policy deductible also plays a part in your final premium. If you get a high deductible, it will lower your overall premium.

Deductible Average annual premium
$500 $1,281
$1,000 $1,195
$1,500 $1,119
$2,000 $1,091
