An analysis of net savings from home insurance between the higher ($2,500) and lower ($500) deductible plans in Silver Springs, Maryland,  shows that homeowners who opt for the lower deductible plan save as much as $1,720 in total yearly spending. This study conducted by Gavop considers a citywide hypothetical claim amount of $2,500. For a $500 deductible, Silver Springs’ citizens pay a median yearly premium of $1,620 and for a higher deductible of $2,500, this value is $1,340.

These numbers widely contrast statewide values. For a hypothetical claim of $400, Maryland’s homeowners save about $160 if they choose the higher deductible plan. Their median yearly premiums are $1,220 under the lower deductible plan and $1,060 for the higher deductible one.

 The study also analyzes home insurance premiums across 10 locations within a 50-mile radius of Silver Springs. For the same hypothetical amount of $2,500 and the higher deductible plan, the residents of Ellicott City save $80 less ($1,640) than those of Silver Spring. The median yearly premiums paid by Ellicott City residents for the $500 and $2,500 deductible plans are $2,120 and $1,760.
