The Lender-Placed Flood Insurance Market for Residential Properties
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) provides the majority of flood insurance on U.S. residential properties. While insurance agents sell nearly all NFIP policies through private insurance companies, the U.S. government still underwrites them. Flood insurance is also available from private insurers that underwrite it themselves. This report provides information about the size of the private market and compares private with NFIP policies.
