Homeowners insurance discounts – why providers offer them
If you're asking yourself why homeowners insurance providers offer price breaks to customers, the answer is pretty simple. They're rewarding you for doing more business with them or lowering the risk you present as a policyholder.
The chart above addresses the home/auto bundle, but that's not the only discount available for doing more business with a provider. Discounts also exist for bundling home coverage with that for recreational vehicles, boats, and motorcycles.
As for lowering risk, let's take a closer look at two categories of discounts. Homeowners insurance providers don't reward households in which there are no smokers because they're anti-tobacco – they do it because they're anti-fire. The average fire claim costs providers more than $33,000. Smoking is a major cause of residential fires. By removing a major fire cause from a home, providers stand a much lower risk of paying one of those major claims. Similarly, smoke detectors and fire extinguishers can help catch fires before they spread – making claims much lower.
The same strategy explains the discounts for home security systems and deadbolts. Both make your home much less vulnerable to burglars, so they greatly reduce your chance of filing a theft claim. The average theft claim costs insurers more than $3,200.
Remember, you haven't weakened your coverage by getting these discounts. In fact, you've increased your own safety by taking these steps. Saving money is just the cherry on top of it.
