Ways to Save on Homeowners Insurance + Keep it Local, Too

In Florida, the cost of homeowners insurance has been going up over the last several years.  Locally owned O’neil, Lee and West  stays ahead of the curve and shops around for the best rates for their clients.  They’ve put together some money saving tips to make sure you are saving the most on your premium, without compromising on coverage:

Wind Mitigation Inspections are a way to save deep discounts on your premium, yet not everyone knows about this advantage.  A licensed inspector can check your roof for specific traits that may save you a lot on your premiums per year. If you have a newer roof on your home, you should definitely consider scheduling a Wind Mitigation Inspection today.
Do you have an alarm system? If you do, this is another great way to save on your annual premium.  Contact your alarm company and see if they can provide you with a certificate showing proof of monitoring, then send this over to your agent.
 
Have you updated your plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling systems or roof lately?  If you answered yes, telling your insurance company that you have shiny new plumbing throughout the house may help too. If you’re on the fence whether you should update your roof this year, contact your agent to discuss this to see if this would benefit you.  Most companies will give you a great rate when you have a new roof.
 
“While we can’t change the cost of insurance in our state,” says owner Matt West, “we can do our best to save our clients as much as we can off of their insurance policies.”
