BuzzHouse: Increased multifamily property insurance rates are causing developers to become strategic

Baker Tilly’s podcast series specifically for professionals in the multifamily housing industry

As the insurance market hardens, pricing on average is up approximately 15-25% higher than it was this time last year. In addition, the insurance market isn’t expected to get any better over the next two years. We asked insurance specialists from M3 Insurance to join us to talk about what multifamily housing developers and owners can do to control their rates and get the best terms and pricing from insurance companies. Brad Winchester and Isaac Bechen offer advice on how to align with your insurance provider and initiatives to think about as you strategically plan for the future.
