Fire Sale

On Dec. 10, 2017 KQED’s Guy Marzorati wrote “Insurance Commissioner Says More Intense Fires Could Lead to Fewer Fire Insurance Options.”  California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones said “It’s possible in the wake of these disasters, that we’ll see some insurance companies, in some homes, begin to decide that they don’t want to write new policies,”“Even if a homeowner has fortified their home with fire prevention methods, cleared brush, the insurer may still decide that because of the location of the home, the topography, the wind direction, its proximity to large forests, that the particular home is one they don’t want to write,”

You may not believe in climate change but your insurance company does.
