You have different policy options for your manufactured or modular home coverage. Some of these options affect how much your monthly premium payment will be.
What is an insurance premium payment?
Across different types of insurance policies, from car insurance to life insurance, an insurance premium is the price a policy holder pays for coverage.

How is homeowner's insurance paid at HomeFirst?
You can make online payments, automated payments by phone, mail your payments to our office or have automatic billing through an escrow account. At the option of your lender, insurance mortgage escrow billing may be available depending on your manufactured or modular home financing company.
Choosing the Best Homeowner's Insurance Payment Option for You
A common question is "Do I have to pay homeowner's insurance through escrow?" and the answer is, it depends.
Your lender may require escrow. With HomeFirst, you also have the option to pay your premium online, automated payment by phone or mail a check to our office. However, as you determine the best option for you, consider the following.
If you have the tendency to miss regular bill payments and do not want late fees, an automatic option, such as escrow if available, is probably good for you. Ask your lender if it is required or not and if it's available through your lender.
If you like to keep a written record of your balances and manage your checkbook in a hands-on manner, mailing payments to our office may be best for you.
If you prefer to form your personal budget a certain way such as keeping a quarterly budget for your family, paying in a unique installment schedule may be the best method for you. This can be done online, automated by phone or through the mail.
What happens if I don't pay my homeowner's insurance?
After a certain number of non-payment days, depending on the laws in your state, your policy will be canceled.
