Medford has grown a great deal over the past two decades, to its present population of over 76,000 residents. The greater metro area has over 200,000 residents, which makes it the 4th-largest metro area in Oregon. Attempts were being made to renew and revitalize the city’s downtown and infrastructure, but the recession put a halt on many of the city’s projects. Still, the wine industry, and the health care industry have helped keep the economy stable. Because the city is on a growth pattern, insurance rates are being constantly revised. This could mean that the price you are currently paying is no longer the cheapest. If you take a couple minutes to review the rates for cheap insurance Medford offers you might be able to save some money. In fact, we recommend doing this at least twice a year in a changing city like Medford.
Medford crime rate has been fluctuating a lot over the last few years. In 2012 the auto theft rate hit its highest point since 2007, with a total of 177 cars stolen. This can affect the price you pay for comprehensive coverage, so keep an eye on it. Any time the auto theft rates dip is a good time to re-shop your policy.
Population density isn’t much of a factor in Medford, since the city only has one zip code (meaning that the base rates should stay the same no matter where in the city you live).
If you work in education or the health are industry you should see if your company is giving you the highly-skilled or highly-educated worker discounts. This is sometimes called an “Affinity” discount and can be given to members of labor unions or other professional organizations as well.
