How to Estimate the Cost of Your Homeowners Insurance Policy in Georgia
In Georgia, average home insurance costs can vary based on individual factors like the dwelling coverage amount and personal property limits required. To get an accurate home insurance estimate, you need to get a personalized quote for your profile.
To find out how much home insurance costs in Georgia based on your profile, you can input the following factors into MoneyGeek’s Georgia homeowners insurance calculator.
The average cost of homeowners insurance will vary depending on where you live. In states with high occurrences of crime, natural disasters and other risks, home insurance costs tend to be higher because there is a higher probability of filing a claim. On average, homeowners in Georgia pay more for home insurance compared with the national average.
The dwelling coverage in your policy is the actual cost it would take to rebuild your home. The average dwelling coverage for Georgia is $250,000, but this can vary based on individual factors, including the size and age of your home. Homes that cost more to rebuild typically have higher dwelling coverage amounts and will cost more to insure compared with those that are less expensive to rebuild.
Your deductible is the amount you need to pay when filing a claim. If you choose a policy with a high deductible, you will pay less in premiums. However, if you need to file a claim, your out-of-pocket costs will be high. In contrast, a home insurance policy with a low deductible costs more each month but will cost less out of pocket when filing a claim.
Liability insurance protects you against costs you may incur if a third party is injured in your home or their property is damaged. It pays for costs like medical expenses and legal costs if a suit is filed against you. The amount of liability insurance in your home insurance policy impacts your premiums, but you can add thousands of dollars to your liability insurance for just a few extra dollars.
Furniture, electronics and other personal items in your home are covered under personal property coverage. If your personal property value is high, you will pay higher premiums for your homeowners insurance. This coverage is important since it ensures you will be reimbursed for losses or damages to your personal belongings. You can use the personal property calculator below to estimate the ideal coverage amount for you.
Homeowners in Georgia with low credit scores will typically pay more for home insurance compared with those with good credit. This is because people with low credit scores pose a higher risk to the insurer as they are more likely to file a claim. If you want lower rates, try to improve your credit score.
