Want to lower your car insurance? Live near a church

Rene Girard

You have heard it said that the three most important factors in real estate are: location, location, location. Turns out that location is also important in terms of car insurance.  If you want to lower your car insurance, then be sure to live close to a house of worship.  That's right, church can be good for your soul as well as your pocketbook.

According to, if you happen to live within one (1) mile of a church or other "religious instituiton" you are 10% less likely to have an automobile accident that results in property damage to your vehicle.  Therefore, if you are less likely to have a serious auto accident (remember, most accidents happen close to home), then you are more likely to save money on your automobile insurance.

You do not have to attend that local church on a regular basis or ever.  You just have to live within one mile.   How's that for an extended blessing?
