Home insurance rates by region
Region Average monthly rate
Kansas $246
U.S. $144

The high cost of home insurance in Kansas is largely due to tornadoes and heavy precipitation. Kansas is part of the Midwest's "Tornado Alley," and has the second-highest rate of tornadoes after Texas, according to the Weather Channel. Reinforcing your roof, siding, doors and windows can reduce the risk of tornado damage, and also reduce the chance of needing to file a claim after a tornado.

Kansas also gets an average of 19 inches of snow per year, according to Kansas State University. Heavy snowfall can damage your roof, and the freezing temperatures can damage your plumbing. Keeping your roof clear and making sure your plumbing has proper insulation can go a long way towards keeping you from having to file a home insurance claim.

Other factors that can affect your final home insurance premium include:

  • The age of your home
  • Construction materials used
  • Your ZIP code
  • Your home insurance history
