					Lowering Home Insurance Costs
Among the seemingly countless bills that pile up every month, one of the major ones, and one of the
most important ones at that, is the homeowners insurance bill. Homeowners insurance in Orlando can
cost a family hundreds or thousands of dollars per year, but a family or a homeowner can cut into those
costs if they will attempt to undertake a few general tips on how to lower homeowner’s insurance costs
in Orlando.

Homeowners insurance in Orlando provides the homeowner and their family the security that any home
insurance policy provides, but at times individuals are prepared to undertake drastic measures simply to
lower their monthly insurance bill. The good news is that a homeowner does not need to do anything
crazy in order to receive lower homeowners insurance premiums, they simply need to make a
concentrated effort in the areas that will actually help them lower their home insurance costs.

Cost-Effective Methods for Lowering Insurance Costs
One of the easiest, most effective, and most cost effective methods for lowering home insurance costs is
to simply shop around for a new policy. For this reason or for that, some people choose to settle on an
                                                insurance policy, even when they know that they are
                                                over paying.

                                                 To lower homeowner’s insurance premiums almost
                                                 instantly, a homeowner simply needs to do their
                                                 homework, consult with an independent insurance
                                                 agent, and shop around for a quality policy that will cost
                                                 less in premiums. Switching may not always save a
                                                 person money, but it is highly doubtful that everyone
                                                 has the lowest premiums possible, so simply looking for
                                                 another option can never hurt.

Another way a homeowner can save money on their homeowner’s insurance policy is by combining, or
bundling, a home insurance policy with a car insurance policy. Most individuals already know that
bundling the two insurance policies, home and auto, under the same policy with any given provider will
save them money, but for those who have not yet learned this little secrete, it works.

Lesser-Known Ways to Save Money
One lesser known way to save money on a homeowner’s insurance policy, or rather, one of the biggest
mistakes a large number of homeowners make concerning their home insurance policy is listing the
overall price of their property along with the price of their home. In other words, a big mistake that a
lot of people make, and a mistake that drives up the cost of premiums, is including the property value of
the land on which their home sits as part of their figuring for the overall coverage needed.

Because the land under the home is not at risk of theft and can recover easily from fire or storm
damage, it is unwise to include the cost of the property in the figures for coverage. Including the land
value when deciding how much coverage to buy can make premiums rise sharply while excluding the
property value of the land can lower the homeowner’s monthly insurance premium.

By understanding what they can do to lower their homeowner’s insurance premiums, a homeowner in
Orlando will be able to implement these and other strategies to lower their cost for home insurance.
