Customers come through your doors hoping they’ll end up in their dream home. But if things go wrong you could end up in a nightmare.
Lawsuits are a drain. On your time, as well as your resources. So make a wise investment. Get your business protected with real estate agency insurance.
Then you can get back to making dreams a reality. One home at a time.
Because accidents happen. And if someone trips on the stairs, or slips on a floor, it could lead to a claim that’ll see you in court. Even if the accident wasn’t your fault.
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?
Even if a claim is groundless, general liability insurance can pay medical bills, hire you an attorney, and pick up your legal defense costs. It can take care of compensation, too, if it turns out you’re liable.
So, why do you need general liability 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.
So long as the claim’s filed in the United States, its territories, or Canada, general liability insurance covers claims for:
There are often hidden costs involved with a claim against your business. Your general liability policy can take care of these, too. Including up to $250 a day for loss of earnings.
The cost of your coverage will be affected by things like your business’s size, its location, as well as the limits and deductibles you select.
Whatever the cost, there’s a package to suit your particular business needs. And payment options, too, so you can spread the cost to fit your budget.
As for what level of cover you want, you'll need to decide what's best for you. But it's always best to over-estimate. Lawyers' fees, compensation and court costs can mount up. So, imagine the worst-case scenario. Then pick a figure you can realistically afford.
Rent or buy? City or suburbs? Apartment or condo? Just some of the many questions your clients ask. You’re the professional after all. So, when it comes to making their dream home a reality, your clients rely on your knowledge and skill.
But if you make a mistake – it happens – and your client’s dream turns into a nightmare, you can be sued for professional negligence. In fact, as a professional you can be sued even if you’ve done nothing wrong.
Even if a claim is groundless, errors and omissions insurance can take care of the costs of a legal claim. You’ll get a lawyer to defend you, your legal fees paid plus damages, too, if you’re found at fault.
Errors and omissions insurance is also sometimes called professional liability insurance. But what’s in a name? All that matters is the policy does the same thing: protects your work, your reputation and your bank balance.
A wise investment then? We think so.
The cost of errors and omissions policies for real estate agents varies, depending on:
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.
