Homeowners insurance costs in New Hampshire are rising, as they are all over the United States. In fact, while the average cost of homeowners insurance increased by eight percent last year, some homeowners have seen increases as high as 70 percent. So what can you do to find cheap homeowners insurance in New Hampshire?

Look for Discounts

Insurance companies offer many discounts that directly lower the cost of your premium. Common discounts include:

* Multi-policy discounts for insuring both your home and your vehicles with the same company

* Loyalty discounts, when you stay with the same company for a certain number of years

* Non-smoker's discount is no one in your home smokes

* Safety and security discounts for installing smoke detectors, burglar alarms, deadbolts, fire extinguishers, window locks, and other security devices

Ask your insurance company if there are any additional discounts you might be eligible for and take advantage of them.

Raise Your Deductible

The deductible is the amount you pay toward any claim before the insurance company begins to pay. Raising your deductible can save you 15 to 30 percent on your premium.

Maintain Good Credit

Insurance companies now use your credit history to determine whether to insure you and what rate to offer you. By maintaining good credit, you qualify for a lower rate.

Shop Around

You can potentially save hundreds of dollars on your homeowners insurance by shopping around and comparing prices. But you don't need to go visiting all your neighborhood insurance agencies.

Instead, you can sit down at your computer and visit an insurance comparison website. At these websites, you just fill out a simple online form with your insurance information to get quotes from various companies.
