When the floodgates opened at State Farm, few foresaw the domino effect that would ripple through California’s insurance landscape. Now, Allstate, another insurance giant, is ceasing sales of new home insurance policies within the Golden State. Not a casual withdrawal; it’s a loud and clear message. They declared their stance after State Farm, and the duo’s exit has rattled the state’s home insurance market, as they were among the top four providers that homeowners in California leaned on.
Housing transactions may soon turn chaotic in the state, as lenders require home buyers to carry insurance policies to safeguard their investment. This sudden shake-up in the insurance landscape could mean more Californians turning to the fair plan, a last resort insurance option, which has already seen a 70% surge in enrollments since 2019. But even a quarter million homes under this plan is a paltry number when compared to California’s population. To add fuel to the fire, insurers such as State Farm and Allstate have requested hefty rate hikes, affecting even those in areas of low wildfire risk.
In an ironic twist, California’s Proposition 103, enacted in 1988, intended to save consumers billions by curtailing insurance rate hikes. Now, it has backfired. Insurers are taking aim at the law, demanding a change in policy or risking more companies pulling out from the state. If left unaddressed, this insurance crisis may compel potential home buyers to reconsider their Californian dream, inadvertently impacting the state’s thriving real estate market.
