There are several factors to consider when looking for insurance. The decision can't be made solely on the homeowner's insurance quotes you receive. While those are important, they are small pieces in a larger puzzle. The financial stability of the insurance company is paramount. If they are struggling financially, how can you be confident that they will be there for you in the event you need to file a claim?
You don't want to have to worry about whether or not your homeowner's insurance company will be able to honor your policy if something happens. You want to know without a doubt that you are safe. So before you make your choice, look into the financial stability of companies you are considering. You can obtain this information easily through independent rating agencies.
The last thing you want to get is an “I-O-U” when filing a claim with your insurance provider.
