There is nothing sweeter than owning a home. What can make it extra sweeter are the insurance discounts that every homeowner can receive to lower their home insurance premiums.
Here’s a list of discounts to consider:
New Home discount
Sometimes the age of a home matters. In this case, newer homes can receive lower rates on insurance. However, the percentage of savings may decrease as the home gets older.
This discount applies for any home with a fire or security monitoring alarm system. Homes without security systems are three times more likely to be broken in and vandalized. It is also known that 90% of robbers look for houses that are not protected and skip houses with security alarms.
For homeowners who continue to keep their home insurance with the same company after a number of years are entitled to get a renewal discount added to their current home policy.
Water Damage Prevention
Homes that have a working sump pump, backflow valve or with a leak prevention system can be eligible for a discount.
Homeowners with more than one property who are insured with the same company can receive this discount. Regular homes or cottages are examples that can be included.
Homeowners and renters with no claims are rewarded with a discount on their home insurance policy. The discount could increase over time when you remain claims-free.
This discount applies for those fortunate homeowners who’ve paid off their mortgage.
