Texas Home Owner Insurance
Quotes - The Easy Guide

Homeowners insurance protects you from financial losses if your house is damaged by storms, fire, theft, and other forces. Many policies exclude damage from certain factors, such as flood. Just what is covered in your homeowners policy will vary by insurer. Although Texas law does not require you to insure your home, many lenders will require you to do so if you have a mortgage. You are not, however, required to insure with any specific company, so you can shop around for the best Texas home owner insurance quotes that are currently available.

Insurance companies base premiums on a number of factors, including the cost of replacing your home, what your home is made of, where you live, what kind of claims history you have, your personal credit score, and the fire protection in the area. Your premium may also be affected by recent events in the area.

Companies in Texas sell homeowners insurance on a slightly different scale than elsewhere in the country. There are various kinds of policies, from HO-A, which provides extremely limited actual cash value coverage of your home and its contents, and which only covers certain types of damage, all the way up to HO-C, which provides the most extensive coverage, including water damage and almost all other kinds of damage to your home and property. HO-C is the most expensive type of homeowners insurance available in Texas.

To get the best quote on homeowners insurance in Texas, you should first make sure you're looking for the right amount of coverage for your home and situation. Then, get quotes from several companies, including independent insurance agents who represent multiple insurers. This lets you get the fairest price estimate. If you're having trouble with the size of the premium for the coverage you want, raising your deductible will get you a cheaper quote. This does mean that if you have a claim, you'll have to pay more out of pocket, though. You might also be able to qualify for discounts from your insurance company. These will vary by insurer, but can include discounts for multiple policies, impact-resistant roofs, security and sprinkler systems, new homes, or a good claim history. You might also fare well if you have good credit.

Before you buy a policy, remember to consider more than just cost as a factor. You want to make sure that your insurance company is financially sound enough to take care of you in the event of a claim Also be sure to ask your agent for the exact coverages and limits in the policy that you're thinking of purchasing, because they can vary by policy. Choose the policy with the coverages you need and with limits such that you can replace your property if it's destroyed. This means that you should base your coverage on the cost to rebuild your house, not its market value. Never cancel an old policy until the new policy is in effect, and make sure that when you apply for a new policy, you answer all the questions truthfully. If you put any false information on your application, you could get the wrong quote and spend lots of time trying to find out what the right one is. If you get your policy based on wrong information, you could also have your policy canceled without refund.
