How can I get cheap home insurance?

In addition to shopping around for a good deal, try these tips:

  • Buy your auto and home insurance from the same company. The bundling discount is often one of the better discounts offered.
  • Ask your home insurance agent about other available discounts. You may be able to score savings by getting a home alarm, replacing an old roof or doing other improvements.
  • Stay with an insurer you like. Many home insurers offer loyalty discounts.
  • Be aware of the insurance consequences of installing a pool or trampoline. You may face a rate increase by adding one of the risky features, or even potentially get dropped at renewal time. Some insurers also have lists of prohibited dog breeds that they won’t insure.
