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

Do both cars on my insurance policy have to have the same coverage?
I have a 2011 Kia Soul and a 2020 Kia Sportage on my policy. I am thinking of removing full coverage from the Soul, but I want to keep full coverage on the Sportage. Am I able to carry different coverage on the same policy?
