How We Selected The Winners
PropertyNest's editorial team compiled a list of companies and service providers in each category serving the New York City area and selected those vendors that stood out from other companies using decisive criteria.
The Best Insurance Carriers
In both renters and homeowners insurance categories, we looked at three main components to determine our winners--usability or access, financial strength, and affordability.
For security deposit and guarantor insurance companies, we looked at affordability, fast landlord approval, and flexibility in eligibility to determine the best.
The Best Home-Related Service Providers
We had expanded criteria for home service providers. In most categories, we looked at customer service, affordability, accessibility or response time, and unique services or features to distinguish vendors from hundreds of others.
Top providers also frequently come up in online research or even by word-of-mouth due to their great reputation.
How to Choose the Insurance Company That's Right For You
PropertyNest's number one recommendation is to shop around. You won't find the best rates or coverage that works best for your home's needs unless you look at a number of options.
Understanding what is covered and not covered, as well as what the insurance company is looking at to determine your premium is another important component in finding the right type of insurance.
It's also important that you compare rates and coverage between national and local insurance companies as they can vary significantly.
Don't forget to inquire about deductibles as well as any discounts the insurance company can provide for your home.
How to Choose the Home Service Provider That's Right For You
All of the home service providers have gone through a thorough review and research of services rendered as well as customer reviews to receive their top billing from PropertyNest.
By going with one of our top picks, you're likely to receive great service and have a good experience.
However, it doesn't mean that these are the only stellar service providers available in the area.
You can always ask around to friends, family and acquaintances on their recommendations.
Remember to ask each vendor important questions about their experience and any work guarantees.
Also, work in your budget and service timeframe make sure your experience goes as smoothly as possible.
