Boston, MA, March 2009 – CDS Business Mapping, LLC., a leader in online hazard mapping, today announced it has added foreclosure monitoring to its RiskMeter Online service.
All users have to do is submit an excel file, and the RiskMeter Online will flag which policies are in the foreclosure process.
Many insurers are starting to realize that once a property enters a state of foreclosure, the potential for losses can increase, due to vandalism, water damage, arson, etc. Insurers who are able to identify policies that are in the foreclosure process will be able to take proactive steps to minimize losses by:
Requesting a property inspection
Determining occupancy status (occupied, vacant)
Issuing a cancellation or non-renewal notice
"Due to the current economic conditions, foreclosures will continue to be a problem in 2009 and beyond," explains Dan Munson, Founder, RiskMeter Online. "With unemployment figures rising, home values depreciating, fewer people qualifying for refinancing and more mortgages underwater, homeowners are either walking away or finding it tougher to make their mortgage payments. Insurers who can identify policies in the early stages of the foreclosure process, will at least be able to take proactive steps to minimize any losses," says Munson.

For property underwriters and agents who are looking to increase accuracy, productivity and overall speed of operations, the RiskMeter Online is an Internet application used to automate property risk reports. By simply typing in an address, users can get back natural hazard information for a given policy location. The RiskMeter can perform more than 30 different reports, including: distance to coast, rating territory, flood zone, windpool eligibility, proximity to brush, EQ hazards and much more!
