Common Flood Insurance Myths for Property Owners

  • My homeowners insurance policy covers flooding (no, it doesn't)
  • A flood couldn't happen to me; I don’t live in a flood prone area (20% of flood insurance claims originate in low to moderate risk areas)
  • If my property floods, the federal government will pick up the cost of repairs (if available, loans from FEMA must be repaid--it's like having a 2nd mortgage!)


Common Flood Insurance Myths for Insurance Agents

  • Writing flood insurance is a hassle (it's gotten a lot easier and your NFIP Write Your Own company should be happy to help)

 

Stop leaving money on the table. Start writing flood insurance!

Using Floodbroker.com:

  1. Your clients and prospects quickly and easily get a quote for flood insurance online.
  2. You complete the sale offline using your agency's regular flood insurance carrier.


Here's how it works:

Floodbroker creates agency branded microsites for participating agents. These microsites contain Floodbroker’s proprietary National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) quoting engine and have a unique URL such as www.floodbroker.com/agents/agencyname. Agents direct their insureds and prospects to their Floodbroker microsite where they input information about their property and generate an NFIP quote. This quote is emailed to their agent who completes the sale using the agency’s regular appointed flood carrier(s).

Floodbroker is a quoting engine only: they do not retain the data that is input into their system nor will they attempt to sell flood insurance to your insureds and prospects.

Floodbroker costs only $50/month and is available to PIA members only.

 

Can Floodbroker provide quotes for all properties?

Floodbroker’s flood zone database tracks with FEMA’s digital flood insurance rate maps (DFIRMs). There are communities around the country that are not yet digitally mapped so there are cases where the Floodbroker system may not be able to generate a quote. In some other situations the person completing the online form may not be able to provide all of the information necessary to obtain a quote. In both of these cases the individual completing the online form can still submit the information that they have input into the form. That information is emailed to their agent so that he or she can follow up and continue the flood insurance sale.

Currently Floodbroker can only provide quotes to homeowners, not owners of commercial properties.
