Apartment ComplexAccording to a national survey conducted by Harris Interactive, 56% of young adult renters do not have renters insurance.

The same survey found that 75% of those without insurance did not realize that they could buy renters insurance for about the same amount each month as one cup of Starbucks a week, or two movie tickets a month.

The online survey of over 1,000 23-35 year old renters, commissioned by Nationwide Insurance, also found that:

  • The two biggest fears among renters are fire and theft.
  • Forty percent didn’t know that renters insurance can cover stolen property.
  • Seventy percent have rented for three years or more and 46 percent have rented for five years or longer.

A Good Agent is Critical
