In homes around the country, costs continue to climb. Higher interest rates, severe weather events, and shortages in materials aren’t anywhere near average. Inflation remains a significant factor in shaping the current market, alongside supply chain disruptions and labor shortages. These factors directly impact your insurance premiums due to increased costs of home repairs, rebuilds and car repair services. If you haven’t received rate increases yet, we expect they’ll likely appear at your next renewal.
