6/13/23 – Fire Insurance

I am getting a lot of inquiries and concerns about insurance and wanted to get you a few quotes on different properties we are doing loans on or insurance agents I know have quoted lately! Yes, rates have increased, but people are still writing in most areas. I am not an insurance expert, but I am an expert in helping your clients feel good about what they are buying. Don’t shoot the messenger, but here is what I see in insurance:

  • 15341 Iron Canyon - Canyon Country – sold $1.8 Mil – Cal Fair Plan – $5550.00 + other policies 
  • 2174 Mar Vista Ave - Alta Dena CA - 1.5 Mil ish value – $1301.00 low coverage to $2346.00 high coverage
  • 29371 Calle Primavera - Santa Clarita – $3677.00 - Pending $959K
  • 22620 Enadia Way – West Hills CA – $1610.00 – Pending – 899K
  • 13417 Aldergrove - Sylmar – $3013.00 - 800K ish value  
  • 27455 Cardinal Court Saugus – 780 site condo – $1920.00 – all other quotes were 4K+
  • 4411 Cloyne Street Oxnard – 700K house – $3003 
  • 10331 Owensmouth, Chatsworth – $610K Pending – $865.00
  • 3850 Vista Circle Lancaster – 470K pending – $1374.00
  • 817 Kelton Street – Tehachapi – 315K Ish house – $811.00

the above is a small sample size, and I will keep you updated as more come through. We have seen a few condos, and the HO6 insurance is up slightly, but nothing crazy! We already have insurance on most of the files we have in process, and I was trying to show what we have been able to get over the past week or so. If more Insurance companies leave California, we must resort to California Fair Plan. My biggest concern with Fair Plan is the timing of everything, and if they get inundated, we will have significant issues closing on time due to getting the insurance we need to close. Let’s hope it doesn’t go that far!


CPI came in at .1% today, and that helped momentarily. The core CPI followed, and there is a question of whether the Fed will raise rates at tomorrow’s meeting - another bad day for you, Barry Habib followers that believe that rates will drop dramatically this week. I wish he were right, but he hasn’t been right in 18 months!
