Insurance for real estate agents

  • Why do real estate agents need insurance?

    Because accidents happen. And if someone trips on the stairs, or slips on a wet floor, it could lead to a claim that’ll see you in court. Even if the accident wasn’t your fault.

    Then there’s mistakes. And we all make those too. When it comes to making dream homes a reality, your clients rely on your knowledge and skill. If that dream you promised turns into a nightmare, they could make a claim against you.

    Lawsuits can cost a lot. If a case goes to court and gets drawn out, you’re looking at legal bills of 5, maybe even 6 figures. Without insurance, how will you cover that?

    So, why do you need real estate agent insurance? Because you don’t have bottomless cash reserves, you’re not a legal expert and you have a real estate business to run. Simple.

  • What insurance do real estate agents need?

    There are two types of insurance for real estate agents that are really important.

    The first is real estate general liability insurance. This is the accidents one. For all those unfortunate mishaps that result in a client being injured, or something getting damaged. It’ll cover your legal fees as well as any compensation owed to a disgruntled client.

    Then there’s real estate errors and omissions insurance (also known as professional liability). For mistakes and claims you’ve not done your job properly. It’ll pay out for your legal fees, compensation, and help you to keep your reputation intact.

    Here’s a few other things you might want to add to your real estate business insurance package: Cyber liability to cover things like data breaches, property insurance to cover your assets, and workers’ comp to protect your staff.

  • Who needs real estate agents’ insurance?

    It doesn’t matter whether you’re working alone, or running a whole team, anyone running a real estate business should have insurance.

    Real estate agents, realtors, and real estate brokers insurance offers vital protection to all those in the industry. If you speak to an insurance broker, they can help you get an insurance policy that’s tailored to your specific needs.

  • What does real estate agent insurance cost?

    The cost of insurance for real estate agents varies, depending on:

    • The size of your real estate business
    • Your location
    • Your annual business income
    • The deductible you choose

    The higher your coverage limit (the amount your insurer will pay for a single claim or all claims during the policy period) the more your policy costs. So, choose your limit carefully

    Just remember that lawyers’ fees, compensation, and court costs can go through the roof. Try to imagine the worst-case scenario, then pick a figure you can realistically afford.

    The higher your deductible (the amount you pay towards the cost of a claim) the lower the price of your policy. But make sure you could actually afford to pay that amount, if a claim is made.

    And remember there are payment options. So, you can spread the cost of your policy to suit your budget.

What other kinds of insurance do real estate agents need?

Business personal property insurance (BPP)

If you take equipment like laptops and mobiles to meetings, this policy is worth having. It also covers the portable stuff in your office - from your furniture to your potted plants.

Comes with general liability, property, and business equipment insurance as standard. Plus, a range of optional add-ons, including coverage for:

  • Equipment breakdown
  • Money transfer fraud
  • Electronic data loss.

Cyber liability insurance

If you use email, own a website, or store client data, cyber insurance is a must. It can’t stop a cyber-attack, but it can pay your recovery costs so your business survives from one.

Workers' compensation insurance

Most states require you to have this policy even if you only have one employee. It’s good to have anyway. It protects your business from the cost of workplace illness and injury claims which can be crippling.
