Purchasing a new home is a major investment, therefore, choosing a dependable homeowners insurance company should be one of the first decisions you make. During your decision-making process, it is important to keep a few things in mind:
- Years in business: Do a little research on the company and find out how many years they have been in business. Some people feel more comfortable than others when it comes to investing in a newer business. Although a newer business isn’t necessarily better than an older one, you may be able to get a better idea of their track record.
- Financial Stability: Financial Stability Ratings® (FSRs) are useful when comparing insurers - the higher the rating, the greater the company's financial stability and capability to fulfill their financial obligations to you - the policyholder. Educating yourself about a company’s financial strength is very important, since this will be the company in which you are placing your trust.
- Customer Satisfaction Ratings: Hearing what previous/current customers have to say about their insurance company can be extremely beneficial. You can see through the customers’ eyes based on their experience and satisfaction with the company. This shouldn’t be the only method you use during your decision-making process, but it should give you a good idea on how the company treats its customers.
The most important thing is to do your research. Choosing a homeowners insurance carrier based on popularity or what you’ve heard on TV or the radio isn’t the best idea. You deserve the peace of mind which only comes from knowing your biggest investment is protected by a strong, solid carrier.
