Buying a home in the capital of Texas & need Austin home insurance quotes?
We can help.
Before we talk Austin home insurance quotes, here is a little about this city:
It is the capital of the state of Texas and the seat of Travis County. According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau report, Austin has an estimated population was 912,791. It is the fourth-most populous city in Texas and the 11th-most populous city in the USA.
When you visit Austin Tx you will clearly see why it is nicknamed the “Bat City.” Besides seeing pictures of bats all over Austin, be sure to see the largest urban bat colony in North America located under the Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge. Imagine seeing a huge cloud flying toward the east! That is what is like when they come out at night during “bat season.”
You can look forward to seeing plenty of live music, “Keep Austin Weird” t-shirts and bumper stickers, mild winters, affordable housing, cheap homeowners insurance and low taxes here.
Getting multiple Austin home insurance quotes comes down to factors like these:
Did you know? The average home value in Austin is $293,100. Austin home values have gone up 10.3 % over the past year and Zillow.com predicts they will rise 3.9% within the next year.
How much will it cost to protect your home?
That will depend on quite a few determining factors. Here are a few questions your InsuranceHub agent will ask:
How much does your home cost? Research shows that as of 2016 the average home here is about $293,100. Do you know the current worth of your house?
How much would it cost to rebuild your house? We suggest that you jot down any upgrades or extras that you might have in your home. For example, if you have hard wood floors and brick exterior, then tell your agent.
What are the crime statistics for your neighborhood? Unfortunately, with a crime rate of 45.39 crimes per one thousand residents, it is higher than average rate. The chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime in Austin is 1 in 23. Areavibes.com tells us that the rate for property crime is 41.42 per one thousand population.
