The information on this list may point you in the right direction. I would first consider insurers/agents you are currently doing business with if you are at all satisfied with them.If not, maybe you should be looking for more than just home insurance.
Request limits, coverage and deductibles consistent with what you currently purchase.If you have all-risk coverage on your car (comprehensive and collision), I would suggest considering all-risk coverage on your home and other personal property you own. If you have $300,000 liability limits on your car, you may want to consider similar limits on your home. Deductibles should be consistent whether they are car, home or medical and represent the amount of risk you are willing and can afford to assume.
Features I like to see in home policies include: All-risk* coverage on the home AND personal property, GUARANTEED Replacement cost of your home, consistent liability limits and deductibles. In some locals, you have to be concerned with the perils of Flood, earthquake, sinkhole damage and wind as standard policies limit coverage in these areas.
It's common to look for the least expensive policy but it's also important to have the RIGHT policy. An insurance policy is just a very expensive piece of paper until you happen to need it.
