Fast forward to 2024 and our annual rate for homeowners insurance is now approximately triple what we used to pay only a few short years ago. Why is it so expensive? We've never filed a single claim or had an issue. So, what's the deal? It turns out our astronomically high prices for homeowners insurance aren't an anomaly to just us.

I guess you could say it could be worse for us Colorado residents, however, it certainly hurts financially.

Colorado is one of the states that is seeing the fastest insurance premium rises in the nation and it appears that there is no relief in sight in the near future. Some of the reasons we have seen price increases in Colorado include wildfires, hail damage, cost of materials, and other various factors.
