What You Should Know About Oregon Homeowners Insurance in 2017

Oregon’s diverse landscape ranges from rainforest to mountains to barren deserts. Residents in any of the state’s geographical areas will be happy to know that yearly average Oregon homeowners insurance rates are well below the average for the western region, and even further below the US national average.

Averages are interesting to compare, but they may not tell you much about the rate you will need to pay for coverage from a highly rated company. Your local independent agent in the Trusted Choice® network can help you compare Oregon home insurance quotes, understand different types of coverage plans, and process claims.

Your needs, location, and home value are unique – not average. Learning typical risks and their likelihood in your area may be helpful to you as you understand your policy. The statistics below compare Oregon claims with national totals:
