Various factors go into the calculation of your home insurance quote that will affect your final rate. These include:

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

The covered items in a standard home insurance policy vary little from provider to provider, yet you can see that prices for a policy can be very different. The reason for this is that home insurance companies use different risk values for the factors involved in your quote.

For example, one home insurer might think the ZIP code your home is in bears a higher risk than another insurer does. This, combined with the high average cost of home insurance in Denver, make comparing quotes from several providers a high priority.

Your policy deductible also plays a part in your final home insurance quote. The higher your deductible, the lower your rate. If you have a newer home, consider raising your deductible. This can save you a fair amount of money over time.
