We had a bad winter. We’ve been warning people that homeowner rates were going to increase drastically. Our companies have started to request for the rate increases this year. The graphic below from a Boston Globe article displays the rate increases for our three largest companies this year and last year. The Boston Globe article can be found here. We have 6 Massachusetts homeowner companies in our office so if your premium goes up too much with your current company please contact to let us know and we can always shop the policy around for you.
