How do I shop for homeowners insurance as a first-time home buyer?

I'm buying a home for the first time. What's the best way to shop for home insurance?

“The best place to look for home insurance is with your car insurance company. Most companies will offer discounts for bundling. You may get a better overall rate and save a good chunk of money as well.
If that doesn’t work or if you don’t have car insurance, you can call an independent agent to get quotes, shop online to compare rates, or use Jerry. A licensed broker, Jerry does all the hard work of finding the cheapest quotes from the top name-brand insurance companies and delivers the best deals to your phone.
After comparing rates with the top insurance companies, you can determine what coverage and policy are best for your new home, so you can get to the fun part of enjoying your new abode.”
