Whether you own or rent, you need home insurance designed to protect your home and personal property from all sorts of accidental damage. From fires to floods, grapefruit-sized hail to tornadoes, ice storms to earthquakes, we have seen it all affect our customers, and we have the insurance products and services to give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Beyond weather damage, homeowners insurance is designed to protect you against other losses too. These include the replacement cost of your possessions, loss of use of your home, and even medical and liability coverage should something happen to others in your home.
How to get a “good deal” on homeowners insurance
When it comes to buying insurance for your home, how do you know what a good deal looks like? It can be frustrating and confusing trying to find a “good deal” on insurance rates, since a good deal can mean different things to different people. For some it means the lowest price. For others, it means securing comprehensive coverage from a highly rated company at a fair price.
However you define it, here are some things to consider when comparing home insurance companies:
Is the insurance agent you are working with independent or captive?
What discounts can you qualify for?
What has been the history of premium rate increases for the insurance company?
What is the quality rating of the insurance company? (Do they have the financial resources to pay your claim?)
How does the insurance company handle claims?
How does the insurance company respond to catastrophes?
How much are the deductibles (the amount you pay out of pocket) for a covered loss?
Are you paying for replacement coverage for your roof and personal possessions, or for actual cash value (after depreciation)?
How does the insurance company determine the value to replace your home? (It’s not always what you paid for it!)
Does the agent take the time to ask questions to understand your circumstances or do they just give you a quote?
Does the agent take the time to answer your questions thoroughly? Do they help you understand the coverages?
