How insurers use property data to double replacement cost success rate

Discover how Estated's property data helped one of the largest insurance providers in the United States enhance their underwriting and double their success rate in finding replacement cost.

Blend Insurance Agency (BIA), a long-time trusted partner of Estated and subsidiary of digital lending platform Blend, is a perfect example of how an innovative insurtech can use property data to enhance the home-buying process and provide an elevated customer experience for its clients.


Already having built a successful business model as a digital lending platform and emerging fintech solution that simplifies applications for mortgages, consumer loans, and deposit accounts, Blend aspired to take its vision and expertise in application simplification and apply it to the insurance industry—a sector rife with its own unique set of challenges.

Blend sought to evolve the industry by addressing the tediousness and frustration of the insurance application process by using property data to enhance its customer experience.


Blend quickly went to work building an insurance marketplace that offered a top-notch home-buyer experience as well as forming new insurance partnerships to help deliver on said insurance quotes offered through their marketplace.

Success for Blend or any other external carrier partner is defined by ensuring incoming cash exceeds replacement cost. Blend quickly realized that determining how to best calculate replacement cost for insurance partners was their guaranteed path to success.

Using property data supplied from Estated, Blend was able to nearly double their success rate in determining replacement cost—removing the frustration many home-buyers experience while trying to obtain reliable insurance quotes and ultimately speeding up the entire home-buying process for its customers.
