I recently changed to a different homeowners insurance company, Travelers. My FICOs are all in the mid 700s.
The letter I received from Travelers said I did not qualify for the lowest rate because my credit history is too short.
This was interesting to me as, although I knew one's credit was a factor for rates, I did not know that length of credit history would come into play. I think it's BS, but there's nothing I can do about it.
