Most homes in the USA are under-insured as building costs have risen dramatically in the past 2 years (at least 6.6%) due to a construction labor shortage as well as new tariffs on materials. In 2018, 14 different natural disasters, from record-setting wildfires in California to devastating hurricanes in Florida, cost the USA $91 billion, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the 8th consecutive year with at least 8 disasters in the billion-dollar range. 2018 was the 4th hottest year on record and that warming not only increases the risk of drought, wildfires and stronger hurricanes, it also increases the risk of severe snowstorms. It may be a good time to review your insurance policies to confirm you have sufficient coverage under today’s conditions. (CNBC)

The bank surveyed 1,000 first-time U.S. home buyers, ages 22 to 38, in March. (CNBC)
