Homeowners in Tucson, Arizona, pay an average homeowner's insurance premium of $1,060 per annum, which is lower than the national average of $1,228 per annum. This is possibly because metropolitan cities have lower crime rates, report better response time by the fire department, and are less prone to natural disasters.
Constructing homes with superior fire-resistant material can help lower the insurance rates for Tucson homeowners, with insurance companies offering discounts of as much as 25%.
