Homeowners Insurance Recommendations
« on: May 24, 2016, 02:47:53 PM »
Any of you have homeowners through residencemutual or Western mutual insurance group? Got a lower quote from them and want to know more about this company before calling them.

Yelp has bad reviews though.

All insurance companies have bad reviews online.

I use Geico, $300 a year, was half the price vs all competitors.

Thanks. I called Geico and they got the quote through Liberty Mutual. It was 10% cheaper than my current premium.
Western mutual quote was 25% cheaper.

I thought Perspective said gates are useless.  Premium drops if you live in a gated community.

OG - just curious if you ended up going with Western Mutual?  I see that have a built in 20% off for only the first year which doesn't make it that great in the long run...

Geico came in 65% higher for Homeowners insurance and 50% lower for auto insurance.  Now I need to figure out how the multi-plan discounts work and if it makes sense to switch.

Western Mutual Insurance won't insure homeowners that are attorneys.  Makes me wonder what they're up to and how likely they'll pay a claim if it came down to it. 
I'd recommend Wawanesa Insurance if they'll insure you.

For those in Orchard Hills, are your EQ premiums much higher than other parts of Irvine?
I was surprised at how much higher my quote was compared to prior neighborhoods I was in.

Well, I live in the same zipcode as OH and yes they are...like absurdly higher.  I don't understand why either because most everything is relatively new and there weren't any major standard changes, so I don't know if it is less people have the coverage vs. the other new areas or if something older and more "riskier" is getting lumped in.  The way the whole EQ premiums work is relatively odd and it totally irks me.

Good to know. I admittedly didn't shop around much since I've been using the same insr agent for years. But did raise eyebrows.

I think it's because OH is closer to more active fault lines, in particular the El Modena fault.

Travis seems like a great agent to work with.  He's not licensed in the state I'm looking to get a policy, but was extremely helpful in answering all my questions even though he could not get any business from me.
