Here are a few more things you can do to ensure you pay the very lowest homeowners insurance rates possible for your profile and preferred coverage. . .
1. Make sure you take out time to look at your homeowners insurance policy's limits twice yearly or more if things change more frequently in your home. It's important that you get adequate coverage. However, you could be getting too much coverage. Take an inventory of your valuables regularly and get their current market value. Although doing this may mean increasing your floater sometimes (to ensure you have adequate coverage), it will also show you when to reduce such floaters when certain items depreciate in value.
2. If you've just renovated your home, you should get discounts in your homeowners insurance rates. This is because many things about the home should then be in excellent shape. The more extensive your renovation is, the higher the reduction in rates you should expect. Just ask your agent.
3. You can get discounts in homeowners insurance rates if you remain with an insurer for over three years. The discounts offered usually increases with the length of time you remain a policyholder. But do bear in mind that the discounts you get for staying with an insurer may pale into insignificance if you compare it with the savings you could get by switching. Therefore, do thorough comparison before settling for this option. Simply get new home insurance quotes from other insurers and then see if what you get as discount for remaining loyal to your insurer is more than what you get for switching.
4. Get new homeowners insurance quotes twice a year or whenever you have a major change in your home or its contents.
Make out some time to visit at least three insurance quotes sites that provide quotes on homeowners insurance policies. The plain reason for this is that you'll get a greater number of quotes from many more insurers. This raises the likelihood of your getting better home insurance rates.
