Calls For Action
NC REALTORS® CALLS FOR ACTION:
TAKE ACTION and tell Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey to REJECT the Rate Bureau’s current request.
In the last days of 2018, the North Carolina Rate Bureau, a non-government entity made up of insurance company representatives, presented a request to state Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey to increase homeowners’ insurance rates an average of 17.4 percent. This is the second rate increase request in just TWO YEARS, with rates being increased 4.8 percent statewide on average in 2017.
Any rate increase will negatively impact the decision-making of your clients and ultimately the state’s real estate industry. Just a couple of percent increase in insurance rates can mean hundreds and possibly thousands of dollars in additional costs that will have to be borne by the homeowner. While the average rate increase requested is only 17.4 percent, some communities across the state could see up to a 30 percent increase.
When Congress is considering legislation that affects the real estate industry, NAR calls on its members to act. Simply by contacting your Member of Congress through an e-mail or a phone call, you can ensure that your business remains strong. NAR members join together and speak with one loud, powerful voice.
