Even though homeowners insurance rates have gone up in recent years, you can still find a homeowners insurance provider with cheap rates. Here’s how …
Cheap Homeowners Insurance Providers
In order to find a homeowners insurance provider with cheap rates you have to spend a little time comparing quotes from different providers. You can visit your local agencies to get quotes, or call them on the phone, but this will take hours of your time and the odds are you won’t get the cheapest rates.
The easiest way to find a homeowners insurance provider with cheap rates is to go online where you can get homeowners insurance quotes in a matter of minutes.
Comparing Homeowners Insurance Providers
My first recommendation is to go to an insurance comparison website. At these sites you spend a few minutes filling out a simple form with your insurance information, then wait to get your quotes.
The benefits of using an insurance comparison website are:
* You only have to fill out one form to get quotes from multiple providers, instead of filling out a form for every provider.
* Most insurance comparison sites are affiliated with A-rated companies, so you know the companies they represent are reputable and will give you good service.
* The best comparison sites let you talk with an insurance expert online, or by phone, so you can get answers to your homeowners insurance questions and get advice on lowering your premium. (See link below.)
After you get your homeowners insurance quotes, go to J.D. Power & Associates website to get quotes from the companies they consider to have the best rates. Go to jdpower.com, click on the “Insurance” tab at the top of the page, then click on “Auto Insurance Provider Ratings.” Under the “Pricing” category you’ll see the J.D. Power’s price ratings.
I recommend checking out rates from the companies that have a five-bullet rating. Compare those rates with the rates you got from the comparison site then choose the cheapest one.
Before you purchase a policy, make sure you understand it. Read it over, or have an agent from the company explain it to you, to make sure you’re getting all the coverage you need.
