Bottom Line

Esurance is definitely a good choice for home insurance. The company's website offers a wealth of information and educational materials on the subject of homeowners insurance. Also, Esurance customers are able to use innovative and handy mobile apps that are second to none. Discounts and special policy features are strong points as well.  The company, however, does not offer all types of homeowners insurance (claiming it's policies are a "hybrid" of HO3 and HO5) and does not cover all dwelling types. In addition, Esurance is only available in 25 states, so you might have to look elsewhere or go with parent company Allstate.
