What type of insurance do you need?
The average American homeowner pays $1,173 per year for home insurance, but in Tennessee, the average annual premium is slightly lower at just $1,149. Even though home insurance costs in Tennessee may seem like a lot of money, having this coverage is vitally important, because hazards like severe weather, hail, fire, and property crimes in this state can cause expensive losses to homeowners who are not insured.

We can’t be 100% certain, but in 2016, insurance companies spent more than $1.15 billion on home insurance claims in Tennessee. That's a lot of unfortunate events happening to Tennessee homeowners.
Insurance companies calculate home insurance costs by asking, "How likely is it that something bad will happen?" The more likely it is that a damaging event can happen to your house, the more expensive your home insurance policy will be. We call these potential disasters "risks” or “exposures.” Let’s take a look at how risky Tennessee is compared to the rest of the US.
The burglary rate in Tennessee is higher than the national average. Be sure to protect your property by keeping doors and windows securely locked, keeping entryways well-lit and unobstructed from view, and putting lights on timers when you are out of town. Installing a burglar alarm can earn you a discount on your home insurance costs.
Severe weather, including hailstorms and tornadoes, can wreak havoc on residential properties in this state. Be sure that your home insurance provides all the coverage you need before disaster strikes.
