Home insurance rates in Colorado are going up. Many factors are contributing to the increase in rates. One being, Forest fires, (Waldo canyon, Black forest, High Park, East peak fire, and many more) forest fires cause homeowner premiums to increase, not just because of the damage and losses they have caused, but because insurance company underwriters and actuators get “scared” of insuring Colorado homes. Some insurance company underwriters that insure homes in Colorado have never stepped foot in the state. Some don’t adequately understand our geography. Is every home in Colorado in a dense forest? No of course not. Colorado quite possibly has one of the most geographically varied and most difficult state to underwrite for homeowners insurance. To use another state as an example the gulf coast city of Houston, huge risk of damage from hurricanes. Dallas not so much. Aspen and Pueblo Colorado, are about as far apart in terms of homeowners insurance underwriting as Houston and Dallas. Thus you need an agent who can choose a home insurance company that can properly rate and understand your risks.
In addition to the recent forest fires other factors effecting Home insurance rates in Colorado are: Colorado’s severe hail, snow fall, and recent floods (largely caused by the forest fire removing vegetation.).
