How to Calculate Home Insurance in Maryland
Homeowners rates vary with each individual property. Some factors that determine your rate include your home’s:
- Replacement cost: The higher the cost of replacing your home after a loss, the more expensive your rate will be.
- Coverage limits: The higher your coverage limits are, the higher your cost of homeowners insurance.
- Age: Older homes can be more expensive to replace because of their unique construction techniques.
- Location: The location of your home helps to determine your rate, including whether you live in a city or near water.

Water Damage and Flood Insurance in Maryland
Maryland residents can face heavy rains and flash flooding. Water damage caused by flooding is not covered by your Maryland homeowners insurance. Instead, you can buy a separate flood insurance policy
for peace of mind through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Without flood insurance, your home insurance company won’t cover damages if you file a claim.
Wind Mitigation Credits on Home Insurance in Maryland
Maryland can experience heavy winds. But if you have your home inspected and certified, you may be able to earn wind mitigation credits, which decrease your home insurance rate. These credits are discounts given to homes that have added protection for wind damage, like storm shutters.
Remember, these credits only help your average annual insurance premium go down. You won’t receive a rate increase because you don’t have these discounts.
