The average cost of homeowners insurance in the U.S. is $1,899 per year. Several factors impact your home insurance rates, including the size and age of your home, your claims history, deductible amount, and much more. 

But the location of your home is likely the biggest single indicator of how much you’ll pay for home insurance. Certain parts of the country are prone to extreme weather and natural disasters, while others may have higher-than-average rebuild costs due to high construction demand and inflation.

Rates also tend to differ depending on the ZIP code your house is located in. A ZIP code with a high rate of property crime and other risks will generally see higher average home insurance premiums than a neighboring ZIP code with a lower crime rate.

Average high-value home insurance rates by ZIP code 

Your home insurance rate is also impacted by your policy’s dwelling coverage limit, which is the part of your policy that pays to repair or rebuild your house after a covered loss. Your dwelling coverage limit should be based on your home's replacement cost, or the cost to rebuild it from the ground up.

Policygenius analyzed home insurance rates provided by Quadrant Information Services in March 2022 for 34,587 ZIP codes across all 50 states plus Washington, D.C., for a 40-year-old female homeowner with no claim history, good credit, a $1,000 deductible, and the following coverage limits:

All rates based on the above coverage limits except where otherwise noted.

To find the cheapest and most expensive ZIP codes in each state, we looked at average annual home insurance rates in 16,435 ZIP codes with a population greater than 2,814, which is the median ZIP code population in the U.S. If multiple ZIP codes tied for cheapest or most expensive for home insurance rates in a particular state, we broke the tie by choosing the ZIP code with the highest population.
