Where can I find cheap home insurance?

I already have car insurance, but now I need home insurance. How do I find a cheap policy? I'm a first time home buyer and I'm a bit lost.

“Searching for a homeowners policy for the first time can feel overwhelming! Fortunately finding affordable home insurance is very similar to finding cheap car insurance.
Requesting quotes and shopping around is the easiest way to find the best coverage and price. Since you already have car insurance, you should reach out to your car insurance company first. Many car insurance companies also offer home insurance. You may be able to bundle your policies to get a discount.
If your car insurance company doesn’t offer home insurance or you aren’t happy with their coverage, look at other companies in your area. Most major insurance companies offer a multitude of products and can easily quote you on a home policy.
If you’re feeling unsure of where to begin, you can work with an insurance broker or use a service like Jerry!
Both can provide you with guidance on what coverages you may require and how to get the best policy at a rate you can afford.”
