We'll be closing on our FIRST home (Thank God) in about 2.5 weeks. I had been procrastinating searching for home insurance because I thought I could just add coverage thru my auto/renters insurance company, State Farm. I called to get a quote today, and I was shocked to hear my agent say they are currently not writing homeowners insurance policies! SO, now I'm panicking and need to find a good company before we close on the house. Bad or good, please give me a review of your Home Insurance provider.
THANK YOU!!!!

When we were in Pearland, State Farm wouldn't cover us b/c they didn't do homeowners' policies in Brazoria County (on the coast--too risky??) Anyway, we got a policy with Farmers, and it wasn't too bad since we changed our auto with them, too. Might want to give them a try... good luck!

Try Liberty Mutual, most people get a good price from them. They don't write policies on the coast however so if your house is there then your out of luck.

Home owner's will depend on where your house is. Good luck on that. I do now that Liberty Mutual is writing in areas that some companies like Nationwide and State Farm are not covering.
Be aware that currently no one is writing flood insurance policies as the NFIP is suspended. I know the inability to get flood insurance has delayed a number of closings. I hope our lovely government will adress that soon. They sure are dragging their feet.
