I know things like age and gender affect car insurance rates, but do they affect how much I pay for home insurance?

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Savannah on December 29, 2020

I'm a guy in my 20s, so I'm sure insurance companies view me as higher risk. Will this affect my home insurance premiums?

Age and gender typically do not play a role in deciding your home insurance premiums. Instead, home insurance carriers look at your credit-based insurance score reports to determine the premium for your policy. Furthermore, any lapses in coverage, missed payments, and some other factors play more of a role in determining home insurance premiums.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
