Why are my premiums going up?

 

Answer

The cost of your Texas homeowners insurance is going up, as it is across the country. Many factors can affect that cost, such as the deductible you select, the quality of your insurance coverage and the increasing value of your home; however, it is clear that rates are increasing for many customers. 

 

Did you know:

  • In the last five years, Texas has experienced losses from all five major catastrophes:  hurricanes, wind and hail, floods, wildfires and earthquakes.
  • The average property loss per homeowners policy in Texas is greater than the average premium in other states.
  • According to the Texas Department of Insurance, thirty-five states have experienced average premium increases higher than Texas.
  • According to the Texas Department of Insurance, the property insurance industry has been less profitable in Texas than it has been countrywide.
  • Over the past sixty years, Texas has had the highest number of Federal Disaster Declarations.
