As we all continue to navigate the unpredictable ebb and flow of current economic times, one consistent pattern we’ve observed is the rising insurance rates in our beloved Sherrills Ford, NC, and across the entire state and nation.
In North Carolina, the consistent uptick in insurance rates has been felt across all carriers, each taking different measures to adapt to these shifting sands. Some tighten their underwriting criteria to mitigate risk, while others carry out detailed policy reviews. Some carriers have even decided to pull out of the market entirely in other parts of the country. This upheaval is undoubtedly causing concerns among our valued clients. Still, we want to assure you that you are not alone in this situation.
So, why are insurance rates on the rise?
There’s a confluence of factors at work. Increased frequency and severity of claims, inflation, higher construction costs, and the growing risk associated with severe weather events due to climate change all contribute to the trend. These variables affect the costs for insurers and, as a result, influence the premiums for policyholders.
In Sherrills Ford, these macro factors play out in our local insurance market. Our tight-knit community has always risen to the occasion, and it’s essential now more than ever that we understand the landscape we are facing.
