Property market remains especially difficult for real estate buyers

Conditions for property insurance buyers are challenging across all industries, but especially so for real estate. As the close of the second quarter approaches, habitational real estate buyers are typically renewing with far greater rate increases than buyers in other sectors. Buyers with significant catastrophe exposures — including those with properties in Florida and Texas and along the Gulf Coast — and/or less favorable loss histories face especially difficult conditions.

  • Property valuations.

  • High-quality underwriting submissions.

  • Alternative risk options.
