Insurance Noodle Expands Quoting to Homeowners Insurance Market

Insurance Noodle, a membership-based online platform for insurance agents, has rolled out its new homeowner’s insurance quoting capabilities. Agents who join Insurance Noodle can now access homeowner’s quotes for standard, difficult-to-insure, and high-value homes, as well as for renter’s and condo insurance. This change adds to Insurance Noodle’s small commercial insurance quote offerings for 1,200 industry classes.

Insurance Noodle said independent and captive agents have had limited choices when it comes to finding homeowner’s, renter’s, or condo insurance for their clients. Carriers appetites to write a policy can change from town to town and even from block to block.

“When a go-to carrier will not cover a home, having access to multiple carriers can mean the difference between getting clients coverage and pushing that business to another agent who can,” the company said.

Insurance Noodle’s homeowner’s portal lets agents quote risk through a universal application and delivers bindable offers.

Ralph Blust, president of Insurance Noodle, said that agents can quote hard-to-place risks and homes worth more than $2 million within a couple of days, while standard homes can be quoted in minutes.

Insurance Noodle provides independent agents with online access to insurance products and services through a single-entry, multi-carrier, multi-line, web-based portal. Insurance Noodle was formerly a subsidiary of Willis Group Holdings, PLC. It was acquired by Insureon in 2014.
