Is it more economical to pay for home insurance with or without escrow?
I'm trying to decide whether to pay for home insurance with escrow. Does it make more sense financially to go with this option?
It can actually be more economical and wiser to pay for home insurance in your escrow. Paying for your home insurance in your escrow means that you will never forget to pay for insurance or allow it to lapse, since it is built right into your monthly mortgage payment.
Also, you are typically not subjected to any installment fees because your mortgage company pays the whole year upfront for the policy and then you pay that amount back in monthly payments. Conversely, if you get a monthly installment plan through a home insurance company, you will have to pay a monthly installment fee on top of the cost of the policy.
