How do I find home insurance?

I am purchasing my first home. My mortgage company says I need home insurance. Where and how do I get it?

“Finding home insurance is very similar to finding car insurance. Many insurance companies offer both car and home insurance as well!
If you currently have car insurance, you should reach out to your company to find out whether they offer home insurance. Most companies who offer both will typically give discounts if you bundle both products with them. If your car insurance company doesn’t offer home insurance, shop around.
If you’re unsure where to start, you could always look into working with a car insurance broker. As a broker doesn’t work for one specific company, they may be able to find you a better deal for both your home and car insurance needs.
If you want to save money on car insurance, the Jerry app is a good place to start. A licensed broker, Jerry does all the hard work of finding the cheapest quotes from the top name-brand insurance companies and buying new car insurance. Jerry will even cancel your old policy for you.”
