Buying condo insurance is similar to any other home insurance policy purchase. Once you know how much condo insurance you need and what type of coverage your HOA requires, you can start shopping around.

How to buy a condo insurance policy

You may need more or less dwelling coverage, often called building property coverage on a condo policy, depending on the HOA coverage.
  2. Request quotes from multiple companies, making sure that each quote uses the same coverage amounts for a fair comparison.
  3. Review the quotes and the coverage listed, looking for any differences including any extras one policy might include that another doesn’t.

How to get a condo insurance quote

There are a number of ways to get condo insurance quotes, including through online quote comparison tools, directly on insurance company websites, and by contacting an agent or insurance company directly.

How you choose to shop for condo insurance is up to you, but if you need help understanding what condo insurance is and what it covers, working with an agent can be helpful. Even if you have bought homeowners insurance before, there are differences between home and condo insurance you should be aware of.

However, you approach it, make sure you are getting quotes from multiple companies. One of those companies should be the insurance company where you have your car insurance; a bundling discount is a good way to get cheaper rates on both policies.

How to compare condo insurance quotes

The first thing everyone looks at when getting back a condo insurance quote is the price. How much you’re paying for coverage matters, but so does the coverage you’re getting for that money.

To compare quotes, take the following steps:

  • Look at each coverage amount and the deductible to make sure they’re the same. A higher deductible will lower your rate, and some companies will do this automatically in a quote to make it look like a better deal.
  • Look at the discounts. Are you getting all of the discounts you qualify for? Are there discounts one company offers that another doesn’t? How much are you saving with discounts on each quote?
  • Check for any add-ons. Some companies include extra coverage standard that is an endorsement with other companies, adding value to your policy.

As mentioned above, make sure the quote you choose to buy your condo insurance is provided by a reputable company. Cheap condo insurance is only as good as the company behind it.
