Homeowners Insurance in Atlanta

When it comes to homeowners insurance, Georgia residents are getting a pretty fair shake. While not the cheapest state in the country to buy homeowners insurance, Georgia ranks almost in the middle of the pack at number twenty.

Residents of the Peach state are currently paying an average of $921 for homeowners coverage which was an increase from April when policies were going for an average of $901 per year. This rate reflects the cost for a standard policy which includes coverage for your house, your contents, loss of use, medical payments and of course homeowner liability coverage.

The best way to ensure that you are getting a great price on your homeowners coverage is to shop it around on a regular basis. This is true not only in Atlanta but every city in the country. Get quotes once a year and any time that you make improvements to your home.

Factors to Consider in Atlanta

One factor that works against Atlanta residents is the crime rate. While our crime rate has been dropping for years, we are still above the national average. Crime rates have a definite effect on your premium.

It is always a wise idea to investigate crime rates in any neighborhood you are considering. The Internet is full of sites that can help you track down current crime rates, by neighborhood and even by street in some cases. Ask your agent for a quote on any home you are seriously considering.

Lets not forget about the weather. While Atlanta is not tornado central, we do get our fair share of severe storms. Wind damage is covered by a standard policy but it's important to remember that flood damage is never covered. If you live in a flood prone area additional flood coverage is a must. The National Flood Program is the best place to buy an affordable flood policy.

It is important to calculate your dwelling coverage for your home in Atlanta so you know what type of homeowners insurance coverage you need to cover your replacement cost. It is recommended to have enough dwelling coverage to rebuild your home if it was destroyed by a covered peril.

Please remember that replacement cost coverage does not include the cost of the land, only the price to rebuild your home, which is why we like to help customers by answering a few questions that you may have.

What is the average replacement cost coverage in Atlanta, GA?

Minimum Replacement Cost Total: $317,733

Location: Atlanta, Georgia (Dekalb County)

Average Building Cost Per Square Foot in Atlanta: $122 (low end)

Average Square Footage in Atlanta: 2,604 Sq. Ft.

None or Very Minor Improvements$122$317,733
Some Additional Upgrades$153$397,166
Major Home Updates or Advancements$183$476,599

The dwelling coverage is calculated by the average cost per square foot ($122) in Atlanta, Georgia times your heated square footage. Which would equal the cost to rebuild your home minus the cost of the property or land. Some homes will have a higher replacement cost due to home improvements like updated kitchens and bathrooms. Other upgrades may include: granite countertops, hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances. The national square foot average to build a brand new home is around 2500 square feet. So if you are looking to build, and your square footage of your new home is 2500, you are looking at a dwelling coverage premium of around $381,250 (Media price to build of $153 x 2500 sq. ft.) to cover the cost to rebuild your new home.

What is the difference between actual cash value and replacement cost value?

Homeowners insurance is available in both actual cash value (ACV) and replacement cost value (RCV). Knowing the difference is important:

Actual cash value: When valuing your personal possessions, an actual cash value policy will take depreciation into account. This means that your 10-year-old TV will be basically worthless according to your insurance company. While an ACV policy tends to be cheaper, if you have to make a claim you may be disappointed in your claim payout.

Replacement cost value: A RCV policy will replace your possessions with brand new items of similar quality regardless of how old they were at the time they were destroyed. While RCV policies are slightly more expensive, they are well worth the cost if you have to make a claim.
