Ohio Home Insurance Increases

Homeowner’s insurance in Ohio increased nearly 10 percent according to the Ohio Department of Insurance as reported in this recent Dayton Daily News story.

Who were some of the insurance companies with nearly 10 percent rate increases or even higher?

Erie: 9.5 percent

State Farm: 12.1 percent

Nationwide: 14.3 percent

Westfield: 15.9 percent

Many Ohio consumers may not realize their home insurance took a substantial increase if they don’t pay close attention to their renewal because their premiums are paid from their mortgage escrow account.

What should Ohio consumers do? Here are 4 quick tips to lower your Ohio homeowners cost now:

First, check with your agent to make sure you are getting all the discounts you are eligible for. Smoke alarms, burglar alarms, new home discounts, etc.

Second, get a quote for a $ 1,000.00 deductible or even higher if you can afford it in the event of a loss. This can save you significantly plus most companies will raise your rate for turning in small claims. (Reason enough to carry a high deductible.)

Third, do you insure your home with the same company that insures your autos? If not, you are probably missing out on a substantial discount, as much as 20 percent!

Fourth, get a quote on both your Ohio home and auto insurance with an independent insurance agency (like us) that represents multiple companies. Click here to get a quote in minutes from multiple companies. You will stand an excellent chance to lower your insurance costs substantially.
