Protect Yourself with Reliable Appraiser E&O Coverage + ClaimPrevent®

Sellers always think their house is worth more, and buyers always think they paid too much. As the appraiser, you’re stuck in the middle. That’s why you need E&O insurance.

Designed with the residential appraiser in mind, our E&O coverage delivers these benefits:

  • Don’t pay for the mistakes of others!
    Our policies are backed by A.M. Best A-rated, admitted carriers.Many companies have raised rates for all appraisers, whether they have had a claim or not. We don’t think that’s fair. If you have survived the mortgage meltdown unscathed, you should be rewarded with quality coverage at a low price.
  • Security of an “A” Rated, Admitted Carrier
    We pay millions in real estate E&O claims every year and are backed by one of the 20 largest P&C insurance companies in the world.
  • Proactive Problem Resolution with ClaimPrevent® Legal Hotline 7 Days a Week
    One way we keep rates low is by giving you access to local expert attorneys to support you BEFORE a problem ever turns into a claim.  Receive a request from an AMC or a lender that makes you uncomfortable, need a letter written, or involved in a disciplinary action? Our local real estate attorneys are here to help.
  • Identity Theft Coverage
    Most states require that you inform your clients if their private information may have been compromised. This can occur if you lose your phone, have a laptop stolen, etc. We pay up to $5,000 to comply with the state required notifications.
  • Don’t Pay for Coverage You Don’t Need.
    We only insure Appraisers who specialize in residential properties, so you do not pay for work you do not perform.
