How to find the best homeowners insurance company

The best homeowners insurance company for you is going to depend on your specific coverage needs. That said, there are some universal factors to consider when looking into different insurance companies. 

Below is generally what you should look for when comparing different insurers:

  • Financial stability of the company

  • Reliability, with high claims satisfaction scores

  • Robust, comprehensive coverage options

  • Affordable rates

The best way to shop for homeowners insurance is to compare quotes from multiple companies. A Policygenius expert can help you determine how much coverage you need and help you find the best homeowners insurance at the best price.

Frequently asked questions

What makes an insurance company the largest?

The largest insurance companies are the ones that make up the most market share in the industry.

What’s the best homeowners insurance company?

It’s hard to determine which company is “best” because homeowners insurance is not a one-size-fits-all form of financial protection. As a rule of thumb, you should look for an insurance company that has good customer service ratings, is financially sound, and offers comprehensive coverage at an affordable price. Shopping around and comparing companies is the best way to find the right insurer for you.

Who is the largest homeowners insurance company in the United States?

State Farm is the largest homeowners insurance company, making up over 24.26% of the market share.

Which company has the highest customer satisfaction score?

Amica scored the highest in J.D. Power’s 2021 U.S. Home Insurance Study, with a score of 854 out of 1,000. The study determined overall customer satisfaction by examining five factors: interaction, policy offerings, price, billing process and policy information, and claims.

Methodology

To find the largest home insurance companies in the country, Policygenius analyzed data from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). The NAIC's Property and Casualty Market Share Report, which was published in 2021, lists the total written premiums and market share — nationally and at the state level — for the top 125 insurance groups in the country. [5]

To get the average rates for each insurer, we analyzed home insurance rates provided by Quadrant Information Services in March 2022 for ZIP codes in all 50 states plus Washington, D.C., for a 40-year-old female homeowner with no claim history, good credit, a $1,000 deductible, and the following coverage limits:

  • Dwelling: $300,000

  • Other structures: $30,000

  • Personal property: $150,000

  • Loss of use: $60,000

  • Liability: $300,000

  • Medical: $1,000

All rates based on the above coverage limits except where otherwise noted.

Some carriers may be represented by affiliates or subsidiaries. Rates provided are a sample of costs. Your actual quotes may differ.
