A Guide to Homeowners Insurance Discounts
Many policyholders with Auto Insurance and Homeowners
Insurance are aware of all the basic discounts they can receive in bundling
their policies with the same companies in addition to smoke alarm, security systems,
and loyalty discounts. If you know what to ask, you can even get more, lesser
Insurers constantly estimate and sometimes offer new
discounts for simple reasons- to attract new customers and lower their own
costs. Insurers are always evaluating the market and based on research, there
are new discounts available to draw in newcomers.

homeowners insurance policies regularly and ask their agents about what is
available. Here are some things to ask:
