The cost of home insurance depends on myriad factors, including the value of the dwelling, the value of your personal items, and the materials used to construct the home. The location of your dwelling can also play a large role in how much you pay for home insurance. Some geographic areas are susceptible to perils such as hail, wildfires, pipe freezes, volcanoes, and other hazards. These perils can lead to more expensive insurance rates.
