Risk Factor reports include additional risk information beyond what is freely available via Risk Factor. By creating a Risk Factor account you can unlock access to a variety of interactive maps to help better understand a property’s risk, estimated damage costs based on a property’s unique risk, and the ability to customize your home’s characteristics to understand how adaptation and mitigation improvements would lower your risk.

Risk Factor content and features are only viewable to Risk Factor members who unlock properties either through trials or purchases. Reports are available for all properties and each property has a flood, wildfire, and heat report. Once unlocked, members will be able to view all three reports for their property.

How do I purchase a property?

If you have already created an account and used your free trial to access a property, you will need to enter your credit card and billing information in order to unlock subsequent properties. To purchase a property:

  • Ensure you are signed into your account 
  • Search the property you want to purchase a report for
  • If this is your first time purchasing a Risk Factor report, enter your credit card information or connect your Apple Pay or Google Pay account
  • Pay for your property report

Customize property inputs

After you unlock a property you can customize the property details to see how your home’s specific characteristics affect its risk by adjusting things like building material, number of stories, structure size, and more. Update the property inputs in the pop-up menu and click Save to store your property’s unique characteristics. 

View all unlocked properties

Once you have created a Risk Factor account you can access any of your unlocked properties by clicking on Purchased Properties in the drop-down under your user icon on the upper right side of the screen. You have access to a property’s Risk Factor report for one year. 

Be sure that you have signed into your Risk Factor account to view your purchased properties.
