About the Event

Join MBA and industry experts for a conversation on how to understand the costs and navigate the complexities of residential homeowners’ insurance. Speakers will help attendees differentiate what consumers are seeing and hearing in the news versus what is happening on the ground, and how incorrect information can discourage first time homebuyers and create confusion for existing borrowers.

The discussion will also unpack the effects, locally and nationally, of climate change on insurance pricing and what data is showing about future trends. Our expert speakers will also shed light on the significant role of fraud in the insurance sector, offering practical insights on detection, mitigation, and prevention. Finally, attendees will learn effective communication strategies to engage with borrowers about the nuances of insurance policies and how to better explain the costs. This webinar is crucial for anyone looking to navigate the evolving landscape of homeowners insurance with confidence and clarity.
