Understanding Your Homeowners Insurance Rates

The average rates listed here are a good starting point, but your individual premium will vary. Here are some key factors that can impact your cost:

  • Location: Living in an area prone to natural disasters or crime typically means higher premiums.
  • Value of your home: The more valuable your home, the higher the coverage cost.
  • Deductible: Choosing a higher deductible lowers your premium but increases your out-of-pocket expense in the event of a claim.
  • Credit score: Generally, a good credit score can qualify you for a lower premium.
  • Claims history: Filing past claims can increase your rates.

The Impact of Weather on Premiums

The recent rise in billion-dollar weather events has significantly impacted insurance rates. Insurance companies need to cover these losses, which can lead to higher premiums in high-risk areas. For example, states like Texas, Kansas, and Missouri experience frequent hailstorms, leading to higher average premiums compared to states with less weather-related risk.

We just moved over to e3 with Chris Stone, 1 1/2 years ago. Our house flooded during snowmeggedon in Texas last February. The insurance companies were overwhelmed with phone calls from Texas. Our insurance company was not responding to us on a timely basis, and because of the supply chain shortage, we knew we needed to act quickly. Chris knew who to talk to at our insurance company, and was a total advocate for us and made sure that our needs were being taken care of. Our last insurance agent was the advocate for the insurance company, not us. Chris knows the business inside out. He guided us along the process of what to do. e3 represents many different insurance companies, which gives Chris the ability to guide you into the best policy that meets your needs. He explains the insurance lingo in layman terms, and makes sure that you and your family are protected. My husband and I totally trust Chris to give us the best policy with in our budget.

I can't say enough good things about Chris at e3 Insurance. He really is an expert in his field and was really helpful and thoughtful through my home and car insurance purchasing experience. But it doesn't stop there. Recently, I was facing a relatively stressful plumbing situation with my newly purchased house and after talking to Chris and putting me in contact with the right people, they had someone come out THAT afternoon-- Amazing!

Chris was a client of mine for a long time. When I reached out to get a quote I was blown away. I found out my brand-new 2022 Jeep was severely underinsured and I had little to no protection for my assets.After comparing my old policy side by side with my new policy he was able to quadruple my coverage and protect my assets for LESS than what I was paying before. When it's done right, it's done right.

Chris has been extremely helpful in finding us great policies for house and car insurance. He reviews our policy yearly to ensure we are getting the best rate and best coverage… and recommends changing when needed. We are very satisfied with his service… he has saved us so much over the 3 years that we have been with him ! So glad we found him. Our kids all use his services also !
