The Dallas Morning News reports today that the homeowner insurance situation is not improving in Texas. Please read the entire article. Here is a very brief excerpt:
A new study from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners released Monday showed that the average annual premium in Texas for the most common homeowner policy was $1,409 a year, considerably more than the nationwide average of $804. Florida was second at $1,386 – after a jump of 28 percent in one year – and Louisiana was third at $1,257.
