Your final home insurance rate is based on various factors, including:

  • Your ZIP code
  • Age of your home
  • Construction materials used
  • Your insurance claim history

A standard homeowners insurance policy's coverage offerings differ very little from insurer to insurer. Why is there such a difference in cost then? The reason is that different home insurance providers gauge risk factors, such as the ones noted above, differently. For example, one company may put more weight on the age of your home as a risk factor than another. This results in different rates. This is why comparing quotes from multiple home insurance providers is in your best interest.
