Since then, it has grown to be one of the most popular personal and business insurance companies in the U.S. Chubb holds a 3% share of the home insurance market, having written 3.1 billion in business in 2020.

Chubb homeowners insurance includes several unique features tailored to high-value homes, like the option to choose a cash settlement, risk consulting, home scan to identify potential problems and electronic data restoration. It also offers up to $100 million in liability coverage.

Read the full review

The 10th-largest home insurance company, Progressive, has seen a 15% increase in business in 2020, bringing it to $1.9 billion in direct premiums. However, the company wrote $42 billion in business across all lines of insurance, with auto insurance accounting for $34 billion. Progressive is the top commercial auto insurer in the country.

Progressive home insurance coverage is basic and doesn't offer many options for extended coverage. In addition, its liability insurance doesn't include personal injury coverage, which comes standard with most major insurers.

Progressive does not write its own homeowners insurance. Instead, it relies on other companies to underwrite its policies. Therefore, rates, coverages and discounts fluctuate based on the underwriting company in your area.

Choosing the best home insurance company for you

When you're shopping for a homeowners insurance company, there are a lot of factors you should consider. While major insurance companies are usually popular for a reason, that doesn't mean that the biggest company is always the best fit for your home.

Choosing a major insurance company does come with benefits. Large companies tend to have more advanced technology, allowing you to manage your policy and file a claim online.

All 10 of the top home insurance companies offer multiple lines of insurance, allowing you to bundle your policies with a single insurer. On the other hand, bigger insurance companies may not provide specialty insurance options if you have unique needs.

Home insurance rates and coverages may fluctuate based on where you live, your insurance history and the age of your home. Aside from price, it's important to consider the replacement value of your home and personal belongings, as well as your liability exposure.

We also recommend reviewing a company's financial strength rating and customer satisfaction scores.
