Best cheap home insurance companies in Miami

To find the best cheap home insurance in Miami, we reviewed dozens of Florida home insurance companies using a range of factors, including a review of each company’s average premium data from Quadrant Information Services, along with coverage options, availability, accessibility, digital tools, and third-party ratings from J.D. Power and AM Best.

We used this information to assign each provider a Bankrate Score with a maximum of 5.0 points. The higher the Bankrate Score, the better the company ranked in these areas. When comparing cheap home insurance providers, these average Miami rates may help you see how your quotes stack up but note that your rates may vary widely based on a range of personal rating factors.

Home insurance company Bankrate Score Average annual premium for $250K dwelling coverage in Miami J.D. Power score
Chubb 3.5 $1,440 809/1,000
ASI Progressive 2.8 $1,863 801/1,000
Allstate 3.5 $2,167 815/1,000
State Farm 3.2 $2,486 829/1,000


Based on rate data from Quadrant Information Services, Chubb offers some of the cheapest average rates for homeowners insurance in Miami. Chubb may also be worth considering if you own a high-value home, as the carrier won our 2023 Bankrate Award for best home insurance company for high-value homes. Chubb’s standard home insurance policy comes with a wide variety of benefits, including extended replacement cost coverage, free risk consulting, a cash settlement claim option and more. However, the company’s J.D. Power customer satisfaction score for home insurance is below the segment average, and the carrier does not offer online quoting.

ASI Progressive

Progressive may be a good option for homeowners looking for strong digital tools and discounts to potentially lower their premium. In addition to the carrier’s low average rates, policyholders may save even more with discounts for new home construction, paying in full, advanced quoting and more. However, the company was rated below average by J.D. Power for its overall customer satisfaction, so it may not be the best option if you’re looking for a company with top-rated customer service.

Home insurance coverage options in Miami

A standard home insurance policy provides coverage for many common perils you may face as a homeowner, but some surprising perils, like flooding, are not covered under a standard HO-3 policy. As such. you might want to consider adding optional policies or endorsements to fill in the coverage gaps in your homeowners insurance policy.

The available endorsements typically vary by company, but some additional coverage options that may be available to homeowners in Miami include:

  • Flood insurance: Standard home insurance policies do not include flood insurance coverage, and certain types of water damage are also excluded. Miami homeowners may find it useful to consider purchasing a separate flood insurance policy to protect their home and belongings.
  • Identity theft coverage:  Adding this endorsement may help protect you financially if you are the victim of identity theft. Depending on the insurer, an identity theft endorsement may help you recoup losses or may only cover the cost of other identity protection and reclamation services.
  • Extended replacement cost coverage: Factors like local materials and labor costs may make the cost of rebuilding your home after a covered incident higher than your standard dwelling policy limit. Purchasing extended replacement cost coverage may help you cover the cost of rebuilding your home back to its original condition.

Home insurance discounts in Miami

One of the best ways to save on premiums may be through company discounts. Depending on the insurer, there may be several discounts that you can stack together to reduce your home insurance rates. Not all discounts are available from all insurers, and each has its own eligibility requirements. Below are some of the more common home insurance discounts you may see in Miami:

  • Multi-policy/bundling: If you already have an existing auto or life insurance policy with a carrier, you may be able to save on your home insurance by carrying a policy with the same company.
  • Protective devices: Installing protective devices like monitored home security systems, smoke alarms and sprinklers may net you a discount with many insurers.
  • New homebuyers: If you purchase a newly-constructed home, ask your licensed insurance agent about possible new home savings. Carriers may offer a discount if your home is less than 12 months old.

The Florida home insurance market is complex, so finding cheap homeowners insurance in Miami may require some research. When researching different companies, asking about specific discount opportunities may help you see which company could actually offer you the lowest rates.

    Bankrate Score

    Our 2023 Bankrate Score considers variables our insurance editorial team determined impacts policyholders’ experiences with an insurance company. These rating factors include a robust assessment of each company’s product availability, financial strength ratings, online capabilities and customer and claims support accessibility. Each factor was added to a category, and these categories were weighted in a tiered approach to analyze how companies perform in key customer-impacting categories.

    Like our previous Bankrate Scores, each category was assigned a metric to determine performance, and the weighted sum adds up to a company’s total Bankrate Score — out of 5 points. This year, our 2023 scoring model provides a more comprehensive view, indicating when companies excel across several key areas and better highlighting where they fall short.

    • Tier 1 (Cost & ratings): To determine how well auto and home insurance companies satisfy these priorities, 2023 quoted premiums from Quadrant Information Services (if available), as well as any of the latest third-party agency ratings from J.D. PowerAM Best and the NAIC, were analyzed.
    • Tier 2 (Coverage & savings): We assessed companies’ coverage options and availability to help policyholders find a provider that balances cost with coverage. Additionally, we evaluated each company’s discount options listed on its website.
    • Tier 3 (Support): To encompass the many ways an auto insurance company can support policyholders, we analyzed avenues of customer accessibility along with community support. This analysis incorporated additional financial strength ratings from S&P and Moody’s and factored a company’s corporate sustainability efforts.
