The Impact of Big Insurance Companies Removing Home Insurance in California on Marin County Home Buyers

Marin County, known for its breathtaking landscapes and affluent neighborhoods, has long been an attractive place to settle down and call home. However, recent developments in the insurance industry have left new homeowners in the area grappling with uncertainty and concerns. The decision by big insurance companies to remove home insurance coverage from their offerings has triggered a ripple effect that poses challenges for Marin County residents. In this blog, we will explore the consequences of this shift and shed light on solutions we are providing our buyers.

Increased Vulnerability:

The removal of home insurance coverage by big insurance companies in Marin County leaves select buyers, primarily in Corte Madera more vulnerable. The absence potentially puts the burden of repair costs solely on the homeowner, potentially leading to financial strain.


Limited Options and Higher Costs:

With the departure of big insurance companies from the home insurance market, homeowners in Marin County face a limited number of options when seeking coverage. Smaller insurance providers who do offer coverage often charge higher premiums due to the increased risk associated with insuring homes in high-risk areas such as Corte Madera.


What We're Seeing

Our real estate team, the Faber Real Estate Team, has been closely monitoring the situation regarding the removal of home insurance coverage by big insurance companies in Marin County. Surprisingly, we have not witnessed a significant impact on buyers in the marketplace. While the absence of insurance coverage may be a concern for some, we have been successful in finding solutions for our clients who are seeking to purchase a new home.

Our Recommendation

We strongly recommend that our buyers receive a home insurance quote for the specific property they are interested in before proceeding with an offer. This allows our clients to have a clear understanding of the potential insurance costs associated with the property and any potential coverage limitations.

Our team collaborates closely with trusted insurance providers who specialize in insuring properties in Marin County. We can help facilitate the process and connect our clients with insurance professionals who can provide accurate quotes tailored to the property of interest.
