Key Takeaways: 

  • CRE developers, owners and brokers have called property insurance prices out of control and have requested lenders shift their insurance requirements to reflect the current times. 
  • Reliable property insurance quotes often don’t come in until the bidding closing. 
  • Most lenders require a property’s insurance policy to cover 100 percent of the replacement cost, which doesn’t match today’s marketplace.
