What does it mean when they say the Insurance Market is Hardening?
We are hearing this phrase used now and the answer is that the insurance industry goes through swings between times when the insurance companies are competing for your business with lower rates and times when rates are increased. We are in a time of catastrophic claims due to Fire, Flooding and Hail- things Colorado has experienced this year and a large area of the country are experiencing catastrophic destruction. The cost to the insurance companies is severe and it will be reflected in higher rates which is a response to these difficult times.
