6.6% statewide average is not so bad, but some will see much more. In Fort Lauderdale and most of S. Florida the increases will be at least 10% and in the hard hit Sinkhole area of Pasco, Pinellas, and Hernando counties, the increases are capped at 20%, but could be less. The bottom line is that for the 4th year in a row prices of Home Insurance will increase significantly and with ease. Our Governor is in his 4th year as well so this is what we expected and what he campaigned about. Did you expect it or understand why?
