Will be moving to Demotte, Roselawn or Rensselaer area and wondering what most people are comfortable with as far as their homeowners insurance company for that area, and what one could expect to pay for a home in the 150k range.
Additionally good monthly rates are worthless if they don't recognize claims you submit!

Those that have had claims and no problems and have recommended company's from experience, please share your story for us new hoosier residents!

I always had AAA Auto insurance when I lived in California and had at least 3 claims during that time with no problems. They always seemed very customer friendly and had the greatest maps for state to state trips.
Many have insurance from Nationwide,Prudential, Century and maybe USAA as far as I know .
But I never had them for homeowners insurance, any positive/negative input greatly appreciated!

Call an agent who is not a captive agent of a large company. They will be able to shop different companies for the best rates for you. (for instance, allstate & state farm have captive agents)

I'll tell you my experiences in my area.

I priced home owner's at State Farm. They required 4 smoke alarms, one in the kitchen and 1 in each bedroom.

Allstate did not require even 1 smoke alarm.
They did give a small discount if there was a smoke alarm, and a small discount if there was a fire extinguisher.

Since I had my car insurance with Allstate, I was rather forced to go there for homeowners.
I priced Nationwide and Farm Bureau and State Farm and either both under the same roof, or house with one and car with another, the costs did not add up positively.
