With shifts in technology and climate, and as the younger generations grow up and start purchasing homes, independent property casualty insurance agents can expect to see a few changes on the horizon. Continue reading to learn more about which trends in homeowners insurance independent agents should know:
Recent changes in climate, and the fact that catastrophic events are on the rise, has led to an increase in claims, claim payments, and ultimately rates.
