Home Insurance Referral Needed
« on: February 11, 2021, 07:06:47 AM »
Hello FAC group,

My homeowners insurance went up 25 % for no claims, no reason, and not related to my credit / background etc.

Can anyone recommend a company for homeowners insurance ? 

I am willing to change all my coverages to one company IF that is beneficial or convenient enough for me.

Lastly, if you have had problems or do not like a certain company, your opinion is appreciated.

Thanks for your time in advance.

Happy gaming,
Big Al

From what I've experienced there is no "better" insurance company for price. You find a decent price, switch over and a few years later you're paying significantly more. Same for auto insurance and internet bills. We have gone to changing our insurance (both homeowners and auto) every couple of years. It sucks and is a pain in the ass (well, not for me, the wife handles it  ;)) but it the only way I've seen to keep the cost down.

I did a quick search few months ago.
Progressive was ok for the prices. Avoid citizens...

I also tend to rely on insurance brokers, that's their job to find the best option for you

Your not alone my premium went up 25% as well.  Almost impossible to find homeowners on a 126 year old home...  Even though all major systems were updated 18 years ago.  Twice the price of my property tax!
Danny,  there's a lot of.... Well badness in the world today. I see it in the court everyday. I've sentenced boys younger than you to the gas chamber.... didn't want to do it.... felt I owed it to them.

Same here, honestly I just decided to pay off the house this year and I'm not renewing by next march. I'll just pay for what I want afterwards, maybe just flood and fire.
its 100%? lol
