We live in California and looking to relocate to PVB. Can anyone share with me what home and car insurance costs are out there. We are looking at a 3/2 home that is located in a non-floodzone part of PVB. Thanks!

Geico/Progressive for car insurance. I shop every six months and they always come in the lowest for us and both company's customer service are top notch.

In terms of home insurance, I just hooked up with a local broker to shop us around, I do not know enough home insurers to be able to intelligently do the shopping on my own.

Are you in PVB? If so, when you do get rates, would you mind sharing what your finding at least ball park? We are just trying to get a good idea of what things cost out there compared to here and we heard that those two are higher. Thanks!

I'm in PVB. So many variables so it's probably not even worth it to give you the figures but here goes:

2 cars: Total ANNUAL premium is $1,224 with Metlife after my wife's company's corporate discount and payroll deduction discount etc. (used to go back and forth between Geico and Progressive but they consistently came in at $800 per 6 months or $1,600 per year). Would likely be about $1,450 per year without corporate discounts. No points/accidents in the past 5 years.

Liability coverage: $250k per person/$500k per accident.
Property Damage: $100k per accident
Uninsured Motorist: $250k per person/$500k per accident

Car 1) 2010 luxury SUV with $1,000 deductible for collision/comp = $700
Car 2) 2006 beater SUV no collision/comp = $524 (car's worth less than $1k)

Homeowners (we're in Palm Valley section of PVB - again, so many variables so take it for what it's worth): No pool, 3,000 sqft home approx 1.5 miles from the beach, flood zone X (as of 2019) = $1,770 per year (includes $25k dog liability coverage). New roof in 2017 (makes a difference - homes with shingle roofs that are over 20 years old pay considerably more - moral of the story: if you're buying a house with an old roof, make sure you factor that cost into your offer).

Was $1,280 year before but this year, they factored in Hurricane Irma and Michael into the premium.

We're not required to have flood but we pay $500/year for FEMA/NFIP subsidized standard flood coverage.

Also have $1M Umbrella liability ins. coverage = $240 per year
