How to Estimate the Cost of Your Homeowners Insurance Policy in New Hampshire
When estimating the cost of your homeowners insurance in New Hampshire, you need to factor in several variables, including your preferred dwelling coverage, deductible, liability coverage, the value of the personal property you have in your home and your credit score.
Get a personalized estimate of your annual premium cost by entering a few details into MoneyGeek’s New Hampshire home insurance calculator.
Your home’s location has an impact on your homeowners insurance cost. For instance, insurance companies will charge you higher rates if your state or city is prone to natural disasters or has a high prevalence of crime.
Although the New Hampshire Department of Safety reports that the state is prone to severe winter storms, floods and hurricanes, it has a relatively low crime rate which explains why it ranks fourth nationwide in terms of home insurance costs.
The average dwelling coverage in New Hampshire is $250,000.
Dwelling coverage will pay for rebuilding your home if a covered hazard damages it. Choosing a higher coverage limit means getting more protection at a higher cost.
Your homeowners insurance deductible is the amount you’ll have to pay out-of-pocket on a claim before your policy kicks in.
Generally, policies with higher deductibles tend to be cheaper. However, you’ll have to be prepared to face greater expenses when you need to file a claim.
Liability coverage pays for the expenses associated with any property damages or bodily injuries that happen to other people on your property, which you are legally responsible for.
MoneyGeek recommends that you consider paying a few extra dollars to increase your liability coverage limits by hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.
Personal property coverage will pay you to replace the personal belongings that you have in your home if they are damaged or stolen. It is important to get enough coverage, especially if you have high-value items such as fine art and jewelry.
You can use MoneyGeek’s calculator below to estimate how much personal property coverage you need based on the items you currently own.
In New Hampshire, insurance companies may use your credit score when calculating your premiums. Homeowners with poor credit scores are generally viewed as more likely to file a claim. To compensate for this increased risk, insurers may charge them higher rates.

Average Annual Premium in New Hampshire for Homeowners Insurance
Dwelling coverage (also known as home replacement coverage) is the amount needed to rebuild your home if it is totally damaged.
When determining how much dwelling coverage you need, you’ll need to consider factors such as the age, size, shape and features of your home. A professional real estate appraiser or insurance provider can provide you with an accurate estimate.
It is important to have dwelling coverage that equals the potential cost of rebuilding your home entirely. We also suggest getting an extended replacement, guaranteed replacement and inflation guard coverages for added protection.
