Homeowners Insurance Premiums Rising in 2022

Updated: Feb 28

The rate of insurance premium increases is exceeding the rate of inflation, and that trend looks to continue into 2022.

All homeowners policies renew annually and if you haven't seen an increase yet, prepare yourself now because your rate is sure to go up and if you have a mortgage, this could result in a mortgage payment increase as well. On average, the typical homeowner spends 1.9% of their total income on homeowners insurance and a rate increase here, along with every other increase in goods and services predicted for 2022 could hit those at the margins the most.

So what's driving premium increases? The Washington Post released an article recently to help folks understand why their rates are going up and includes a great link to 12 Ways to Lower Your Homeowners Insurance Costs
