How to find cheap home insurance in Oregon


Homeowners insurance is an optional — but important — product that works to keep your belongings safe in the event your house or property suffers damage from common incidents. A homeowners policy covers your dwelling, personal property, and other buildings in the event of an array of circumstances, including theft, fire, vandalism, or wind damage.

Unlike auto insurance, home insurance is not priced based on state-level legislation. Even so, major differences exist in homeowners insurance rates from state to state. Insurance policy prices in US states may differ depending on the number and value of home policy claims filed in that state, and depend on the value of the belongings and property you're covering.

The best way to find a cheap homeowners insurance policy in Oregon is to get quotes from multiple companies. Get an idea of homeowners insurance costs in Oregon via the below data. Your rates may vary, depending on your coverage limits.

Homeowners insurance deductibles in Oregon

Homeowners have a lot of decisions to make when deciding on a homeowners insurance policy, including how much their deductible should be. A homeowners deductible is the amount you must pay out of pocket toward a covered loss. The deductible chosen can impact your insurance rates directly.

When thinking about your deductible, a good rule of thumb is that the lower your deductible, the higher your premiums. This means that those looking for lower rates will want to consider a higher homeowners deductible. It's worth remembering that a homeowners deductible should only be as high as you can reasonably pay in the event of a loss.

Below are some standard deductible options offered on most home policies as well as with corresponding average insurance rates.

Does homeowners insurance cover boats in Oregon?

In Oregon, it's typical for many homeowners policies to extend liability coverage to boats under a certain size (usually under 25 feet in length and 50 horsepower). This means that it is likely to pay should you cause an accident. However, this will not typically provide much coverage for damages to your boat. For more robust coverage you may need a separate boat policy.

Does Oregon allow a non-homeowner to insure a house?

Oregon requires you to have an "insurable interest" in the property before you are allowed to insure it. As a non-homeowner, it's highly unlikely that any insurance company would allow you to take out a policy on a piece of property owned by others.
