Choosing homeowners insurance in Cleveland

cleveland Skyline

Homeowners insurance premiums in the U.S. average $1,083 annually. Cleveland premiums average 26 percent less at $797. Ohio is ranked ninth lowest among U.S. states.

Average annual insurance premiums for a $200,000 home with a $1,000 deductible are $824 in Old Brooklyn, $855 in Collinwood and $884 in the North-Broadway neighborhood. For a $400,000 home, premiums range between $1,491 and $1,592.

Prices decrease in the Cleveland suburbs. A $200,000 home in South Euclid has an average premium of $798, with Lakewood and Brook Park at $780 and $719. A $400,000 home in these suburbs ranges from $1,271 to $1,440.

Homeowners may benefit from discounts. State Farm and GEICO offer 10 to 15 percent off when you “bundle,” or purchase other types of insurance with them. Progressive offers unique discounts for paying the entire yearly premium in advance or enrolling in paperless (electronic) document delivery.

Although Ohio does not require homeowners insurance, mortgage lenders do. Homeowners unable to find any insurer may consider the state's FAIR Plan for help. Coverage is critical to avoid being financially liable for property damage or injuries to guests at your home. Ohio homeowner claims in 2015 totaled about $1.1 billion, largely caused by wind, hail and water.

Natural hazards and additional coverage for Cleveland residents

Homeowners should carefully read their policy details to understand what is and is not included. For example, flood insurance must be purchased separately. Neighborhoods in Cleveland city limits at high risk of flooding are next to the Cuyahoga River, including:
  • Kinsman
  • Lee-Harvard
  • Buckeye-Shaker Square
  • Jefferson
  • Buckeye-Woodhill

Proximity to the Big Creek Reservation causes flooding in these suburbs:

  • Parma
  • Brooklyn

Earthquakes, termites and intentionally caused injuries or damage are also excluded from coverage.

Fortunately, Cleveland has not had a major earthquake in over 100 years and has no hurricane exposure.

Icy Ohio winters cause frozen pipes and roof damage. Pipes must be properly insulated to avoid freezing and bursting. These conditions are unlikely to cause sudden roof damage, but over time water freezing into ice expands roofing materials and damages them.
