Thanks!
What is the reason they won't insure...?

Default Insurance

USAA is the cheapest by far but you will have to have been in the military.

It's probably because of what happened in 2005 to Port Arthur, New Orleans, and Pascagoula.

Sadly enough, these areas still look somewhat like this today.

Chubb is great. Especially for property within the home.
I have Chubb on my primary residence and Fireman's Fund on another.

Hi Greenie,

I am considering buying in Pearland next year which is in Harris County. What is the reason for difficulty in getting insured in Harris County.

I'm pretty sure Pearland is in Brazoria county, which is a coastal county. But technically so is Harris. Whatever the case, I mentioned why I believe getting insured is difficult in the above post (#14.)

A lot of the companies who say they don't write new policies actually mean they don't write their own policies for new customers. They will still write a new policy for new customers through the Texas FAIR Plan.

I was in a pinch at closing time and went with Nationwide. Their pricing and service leave much to be desired. I switched to Farmers. They do a better job, but going through a private broker is your best bet. I'll namedrop once I find one.
