Hawaii Home Insurance Premium Comparisons

Maui Real Estate SpecialistsThe state of Hawaii has recently made it easier to get comparative information about insurance plans. As Maui real estate specialists, we especially appreciate the homeowner comparison guide, but they have also provided guides for motor-vehicle and health insurance premiums.

Government websites are notorious for being difficult to navigate, but the state of Hawaii is working to improve in that regard, which is great news. This was a big step forward for the Insurance Division of the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs. It's the first time they've posted rates for all three major insurance purchase types.

Insurance Commissioner Gordon Ito explained that the goal was to make it easier for consumers to learn about their insurance policy options. They are hoping to curb over- and underpaying. You can find links to each by following this link.

Under the Home Insurance Premium Comparison section, there are three PDFs. One is for homeowners, another for condo owners, and the last is for renters. If you are in the market for Maui real estate, perhaps you can make use of this information in the process of planning your budget.

If you need assistance finding the right Maui real estate to meet your needs, you'll find our contact information at the bottom of the page. In the meantime, we hope you find this information useful! Mahalo!
