Would these correct?

"I insisted againt him buying a new house. "

Can I also say "I insisted otherwise. "

Thank you.

    The normal constructions are "to insist on + NOUN" and "to insist that + VERBAL CLAUSE". To insist against doesn't exist. "I insisted otherwise" is acceptable: I suppose it's a shortened version of "I insisted that things were otherwise".
