Top 10 Homeowner’s Insurance Companies

August 31, 2010 No Comments »


Last year, State Farm was the top homeowner’s insurance company, based on direct insurance premium written.

The well-known company, which is also the leading car insurance company, wrote $14.7 billion in homeowner’s insurance, while claiming a staggering 21.6% of total market share.

Allstate was a distant second with $6.8 billion in premium written, helping it gather 10% of the nation’s market share.

Rounding out the top three was Zurich Financial Services, which wrote $5.1 billion in homeowner’s insurance for 7.4% market share.

Keep in mind that these homeowners insurance companies aren’t necessarily the best in terms of customer satisfaction or pricing, but rather the largest operating in the country, per III data.

You should also look at insurance company ratings and inquire with your State Department of Insurance to ensure the company you ultimately choose to obtain coverage with is sound financially.

Remember, the biggest company certainly isn’t the best, and if they’re advertising heavily on television, they may have to charge you more to compensate.

Unsurprisingly, some of the largest insurance companies are also the most expensive, despite failing to top the ranks of customer satisfaction surveys.

As you can see from the chart below, Amica Mutual was the top homeowner’s insurance company last year in terms of satisfaction (per J.D. Power), which is certainly more important than size, assuming they’re financially sound.

State Farm performed well by claiming the fourth spot, but Allstate and Liberty Mutual were just average, while Travelers was poor.
