HomeSafe Discounts from Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliance

Homesafe Insurance Discounts by MAHAWould You Be Interested in Saving 10-15% Off of Your Homeowners Insurance Every Year Forever?

You know about good driver discounts. How about a good homeowner discount?

Did you know that you can take a class on home or condo ownership and reduce your annual insurance premiums for the life of the policy?  There are no programs in place which can save you a significant amount of money over the course of owning a policy.

The Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliance (MAHA) has negotiated with insurance companies and area retail stores to secure money saving HomeSafe℠ discounts for  graduates of their Homeowner 201 or Condo Owner 202 classes.

What is HomeSafe℠

HomeSafe℠ is MAHA’s homeowner resource center and it includes Homeowner 201 and Condo Owner 202, free workshops to help make your home or condo safe from unnecessary repairs, crime, fire, landlord/tenant disputes, lead paint, and foreclosure.  The course is going to essentially teach you how to be a good homeowner which in turn makes you a better insured person for the insurance carriers. Insurance companies are looking for low risk homeowners. They feel that homeowners who take the workshops will file fewer claims and have fewer losses than other homeowners have.

In addition, graduates will learn about HomeSafe discounts, grants, low interest loans and other resources available to homeowners.

How Do I Obtain HomeSafe℠ Discounts?

After completing the workshops, graduates will receive a HomeSafe℠ certificate that is presented to participating insurance agents and a HomeSafe℠ card that is presented at retailers to receive the discount.

Lydon and Murphy Insurance is proud to say that they work with carriers who give HomeSafe℠ discounts to their insureds.

How Much Can You Save with HomeSafe℠?

How much will I save with discounts? Prices of policies vary due to the type of house and the community in which you live. Here are two typical scenarios:
