Why Oregon home insurance?
Oregon experiences five very different climates, but thunderstorms and wildfires plague the entire state. The eastern part of the state must worry about dry summers and cold, snowy winters, whereas the wetter west coast experiences vulnerability to flooding and earthquakes.
Residents on the west coast take note: flood and earthquake damage typically are excluded from standard Oregon homeowners insurance protection. Consider an endorsement or a separate policy for earthquake coverage. For flood protection, purchase a separate policy through the National Flood Insurance Program.
Home insurance premiums in Oregon
The average Oregon home insurance premium in April 2015 was $450.00. It appears that premiums have increased since March when average premiums in Oregon were around $448.00. This reflects the annual cost of a standard home policy and does not include flood insurance or earthquake insurance.

Standard Oregon home insurance coverage
The price isn't the only important thing about homeowners insurance. It's also good to have a general familiarity with the aspects of your life that your policy covers. The 6 main coverage types that comprise your policy are:
- Dwelling and Other Structures: Your policy protects the structure of your house (Dwelling) and any additional structures on your property detached from it (Other Structures).
- Personal Property: Your policy safeguards the contents of your home from named perils such as fire or theft.
- Loss of Use: If your home becomes badly damaged in a covered event and you are forced to move out while it undergoes repairs, your policy can help pay the bills for restaurants or hotels.
- Personal Liability: If someone sustains an injury on your property and decides to sue, you can get help paying legal costs and the final judgment.
- Medical Payments: Medical bills for injuries sustained on your property can be covered if the injured party doesn't take you to court.
