Farmers Home Insurance Review Highlights
Farmers offers homeowners insurance and renters insurance, along with discounts for bundling multiple policies.
Farmers Smart Plan Home insurance policies are based on three customizable packages: Standard, Enhanced and Premier. Standard policies are designed for new homeowners and are meant to focus on affordability. Enhanced policies offer higher coverage limits and extra protections, like covering the cost to replace your roof, without deducting depreciation. Premier policies (not available in California) offer the highest coverage limits as well as Farmers’ Guaranteed Replacement Cost, which reimburses 100% of the cost to rebuild a home after a covered loss.
Renters insurance from Farmers protects your personal property, including furniture and electronics-, from risks such as fire, theft, or acts of nature. It also protects renters from being sued by covering medical expenses for guests who get injured on a rental property. It covers any relocation expenses incurred as a result of a covered loss, too.
Overall, Farmers’ homeowners and renters insurance policies are dependable and affordable, especially for customers who bundle with a Farmers auto insurance policy.
