Can I get a home insurance quote for a property I haven't purchased yet?

Mary asked

I want to buy a house and I've narrowed my options down to two properties. Once I decide which one I want, can I get a home insurance quote before closing?

Yes you can. It is actually common for a mortgage company to require you to have home insurance prepared before buying a property. For this reason, you will most likely have to get home insurance before you actually close on a home. You can have the policy go into effect on your closing date.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
