Home insurance premiums are rising as a result of several pandemic-related trends. There has been a significant increase in our costs due to inflation, which means that we have had to raise our prices as well. Insurance firms consider industry trends like the number of claims and repair costs when establishing premiums. If costs rise, so will premiums.
The price of constructing materials and labor has gone up - Due to limited availability, the cost to repair and build dwellings has risen. These undoubtedly raised your property insurance prices.
Increased auto repair and labor costs - More people are driving older automobiles, requiring more maintenance. Increased demand and supply chain concerns are inflating vehicle part prices. Staffing shortages and higher labor costs are also increasing auto repair costs.
