In our April edition of Insurance Agency Sales Alerts, we have three incredible opportunities as our sample listings. We continue to be excited by the strength of the Insurance M&A activity as we finish the first quarter of 2021. Although it is still a strong seller’s market, we are happy to report that in general, buyers are being wise with their purchases. That means that there are quite a number of overvalued agencies still waiting for buyers. We anticipate sellers will take note of the general sensibilities of buyers, leading to reduced asking prices in the near future.
Overall, the P&C insurance market writing capacity is strong – bolstered by plentiful new capital that continues to flow into the insurance marketplace. The P&C market is showing signs of hardening – but only in select geographic markets and sectors. Most Property and Casualty insurers are enjoying a surplus fueled by the robust economic picture; they are seeing growth in net written premiums as well as expanding levels of alternative capital.

If you need help with financing, we highly recommend utilizing our lenders. We will integrate the M&A project together with your financing. It costs you no more, is less work for you and is significantly more successful. REMEMBER: Botched financing is the number one reason deals fail.
ALL INTERESTED BUYERS: If you are agreeable to SBA products, the new Federal Stimulus program beginning on February 1, 2021 and lasting until the end of September 2021, will provide payment of your Principal and Interest (up to $9000 a month) for 3 months while waiving the guarantee fee which is usually approximately 2% of the loan amount.
