Homeowners insurance comparisons do not have to be a complicated process, as long as you take a minute to pay attention to the details. For example, often times people don't stop to think about exactly what they need and what they are looking for when comparing quotes.
It does you no good if you are buying a house and looking at quotes online when one is for a condo and the other for a single family house. You may think they are similar enough, but for insurance purposes, they are night and day.
You don't want to pick a plan only to find out that it is for a completely different type of structure than the one you are trying to insure. So take a minute, figure out exactly what you need to insure, and compare the relevant quotes to one another. It will save you time and confusion later on.
