When we are thinking about home insurance, you may want to make sure that those companies are legal and creditworthy. Before you make up your mind, it's better to find out if the company is licensed or not.

2) Insurance Company Financial Status :-
                          Before investing in any company find out it's financial status by searching on web about the top credit agencies. But you should not stop here, consider asking relatives, co-workers and friends for referrals. Its always better to get benefit from the experiences of others, so get knowledge from someone you know who had filled a claim about an insurer's customer service representatives, the speed with which a claim was appraised, processed and paid is up to the customers expectations or not will tell you about the efficiency of that company.

5)  According To Your Geography Choose Insurance Company :-
                           Different locations have different geographical issues like natural disasters. So companies that don't have a wide base of operations in your surrounding may not correctly understand your requirements. Ask home insurance companies about coverage for various perils.  

6) Other Important Factors :-
                           There are few important factors to be taken into consideration are -
  • Policy holders complaints
  • Fraud reports
