Homeowner Inflation Trends

We monitor inflation trends in building materials regularly and work to reflect an adequate cost to rebuild part or all of your home in the event of damage to your property. Review your Coverage A (the part of your policy limit dedicated to your home) amount with your independent agent to ensure you are staying ahead of inflation trends and that you’ve considered the cost of any unique features of your home.

Consider the percentage change in material costs from January 2020 to December 2023, according to www.bls.gov.*

Ways to Reduce Your Homeowner Premium

When you take extra steps to protect your home, you not only reduce the risk of incurring an inconvenient claim, but you may be eligible for premiums credits on your home, condo, or tenant policy. (Credit availability varies by state, and premium credits may differ based on the characteristics of the property or location).
