Covers dwelling, liability, property and loss of use
In Tulsa, annual home insurance policies are around $1,400 more than policies nationwide. Higher rates are due to tornadoes, strong wind storms and criminal property damage. Rates in the 71st Street Corridor (74136) are cheaper than rates in Southern Hills (71118) because the homes are newer. Some neighborhoods in Tulsa include homes built in the late 1800s, which also increases premiums.

Note: Based on dwelling coverage above with a constant $1,000 deductible and $100,000 liability.
Though homeowners insurance is not required in Tulsa, mortgage companies and lenders require policies on any home purchased with a loan to help protect their company in the case of loss. Even if insurance isn’t required, it’s worth purchasing a policy to protect your home, one of the largest investments you’ll make.
Before buying a policy, make a list of questions to ask your agent to ensure you are getting coverage that fits your needs and protects your investment. Consider asking for the claims history for your home, the benefits of choosing replacement cost or actual cash value in the event of loss, what additional or extended coverage is available (including policy exclusions), how much liability protection to get and what savings you qualify for.
