Glendale has the most expensive homeowners insurance in Arizona, in large part due to its elevated crime rate, according to study released earlier this month.
ValuePenguin, an online company that helps consumers understand insurance, distributed a study Jan. 20 that found Glendale has the highest average annual rate for homeowners insurance out of 51 cities in the state.
“Average homeowners insurance premiums of $1,653 make Glendale 29 percent more expensive than the state average,” the company said on its website.
Madison Reed, a company spokesperson, helped explain in an email why that rate matters.
