Article Body:
The information that you receive when shopping for insurance online is only as good as the information that
you input when you make your request. The homeowner insurance quote is relatively easy if you have the
basic information needed to give you an accurate quote. The online quoting system will respond to your
request very quickly once you input all the data. There are different types of homeowner policies for
different types of homes. The residential home, the townhouse, and the condominium all require slightly
different coverage. The age of the home also dictates the type of policy that you should purchase.


The online insurance calculators rely heavily on certain criteria when determining the actual rate. The actual
square footage of your home is the starting point for most insurance companies. Square footage is used
because home builders use it to estimate the cost to rebuild a house. You can find the accurate square
footage on your home from the original house appraisal or plot plan. Once you have the square footage then
you can add the upgrades like fireplaces, air conditioning, and finished basements. The online insurance
calculators will often ask for a percentage of your total basement area that is finished.


There are several questions asked during online quoting about possible discounts. There is a protective
device discount for having deadbolt locks, smoke detectors and a fire extinguisher. There are even larger
discounts for burglar and fire alarm systems that ring directly into the police station and fire department.
There will also be a variety of deductibles. It is wise to purchase the highest deductible that you can afford.
Lower deductibles no longer justify the high premiums. Homeowner claims are too infrequent.


These are the basic things to look for when shopping. Use your insurance renewal declarations page if you
are a comparison shopper. You will be able to move very quickly through the online quoting process if you
have this information available.
