Homeowners: Reduce Your Premiums by Increasing Your Deductibles

For homeowners, there’s an easy way to lower homeowners insurance premiums that you can use whether you live in Green Valley, Arizona or Boston, Massachusetts: increase your deductibles. If you’re a homeowner, you might be able to save a lot of money on your premiums by increasing your policy’s deductibles.

In most cases, deductibles and premiums have an inverse relationship. As one is increased, the other is decreased. In many cases the difference is significant between premiums when a deductible is raised is significant. Increasing your deductible to $1,000 could lower your premiums by up to 25 percent.

Of course, the exact savings will differ depending on the insurer, specific policy, and initial deductible. Someone who raised their deductible from $100 to $1,000 will probably save more than a person who increased it from $500 to $1,000 (assuming all other factors are equal).
