Home insurance is your protection from damage that could be caused due to unforeseen events like fire in your kitchen, or a theft that occurred while you were at work. A standard Miami home insurance policy will not cover natural disasters like hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes.

When you’re looking to get a Miami Florida home insurance policy, you would have to buy these policies against frequent natural disasters separately to cover your home.

Living in a disaster prone area does not mean you should pay over the top amounts for your home insurance policies. The amount you could save depends on the location, home type and how old it is. Personal factors like smoking, whether you make repetitive claims, and if you have good credit, also matter.

Here are some tips which will help save the extra amount you would normally pay on home insurance:-

Tip#1 Raise your deductibles For residents in Miami, ensure that your Miami home insurance policy has an additional deductible for natural disasters like hurricanes and floods. Don’t raise your deductibles to the extent that is unaffordable to you if you actually had to make a claim sometime. Increasing your deductible will decrease your insurance premium.

Tip#2 Good credit will carry you a long way Maintaining good credit is how the insurer will evaluate you. If you do not have a good credit history then you are a potential future risk to the company and your rates would be increased due to this. Paying bills on time, not having maxed out credit cards will improve your credit rating and reduce the insurance costs.

Tip#3 Survey before Purchase Insurance companies have different rates, discounts and membership plans would differ too. It is a good idea to search online or visit different providers and look for the best price with the best coverage plan. If you decide to stick to your provider, ask for a loyalty discount. Always be on the lookout for better deals before investing.
