Renters can now purchase renters insurance on Zillow

After we covered the partnership between Zillow and Homesite, the real estate platform is sharing that renters can now purchase a policy through the Zillow app or website at key points in their journey — whether it’s when they sign their lease or after they’ve settled into their new place.

Renters insurance through Zillow is available in 49 states and Washington, D.C. To date, more than 1,500 renters have already secured policies through Zillow Insurance Services.

Renters purchasing a policy through Zillow will be able to “easily share” their policy documents with their landlord.

“Renters insurance is important for both tenants and landlords, and now renters can conveniently get a quote and purchase a plan through Zillow, making their move that much easier. Zillow aims to simplify the moving process and make life easier for renters. We understand the importance of crossing off those essential to-do list items, and now we’re excited to offer a seamless solution to protecting renters’ belongings.” – Michael Sherman, vice president of Zillow Rentals.
