You can get a customized rate by choosing from among 10 coverage levels, so you know what to expect to pay and can see how much you can save by comparing home insurance companies.
Home insurance companies consider many factors when setting rates. Chief among them are your home’s location, which reflects its exposure to hazards, such as storm damage, wild fires, burglaries and so on, your home’s value and the cost to rebuild it, as well as your credit history, in states that allow that practice.
“Rates can fluctuate significantly from state to state, or even neighborhood to neighborhood, depending on how insurers assess the various things they look at,” said Michelle Megna, editorial director of Insurance.com. “That’s why, regardless of where you live, if you don’t compare rates, you can wind up overpaying by hundreds, sometimes thousands, of dollars.”
