Outer Banks NC Insurance Rate Decrease

By

We love starting off the New Year with good news, and here it is!!!

North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin has ordered a zero percent statewide overall average change in homeowners’ insurance rates, effective June 1, 2015.  The decision comes after Goodwin held a hearing to examine the insurance companies' request to raise overall average rates by 25.6 percent. During the hearing, experts from the N.C. Rate Bureau, on behalf of the insurance companies, and experts from the N.C. Department of Insurance, representing the interests of the public, presented their cases for and against the rate hikes. It was the first hearing on homeowners’ insurance rates since 1992.

"The rates I have ordered are the result of the most thorough inspection of North Carolina homeowners’ insurance rates in more than 20 years," said Goodwin. "After considering all of the evidence and data available, I have determined that no factors or events justified the excessive rates requested by the insurance companies."

Effective June 1, 2015, rates for the barrier island portions of Currituck, Dare and Hyde Counties will go down 9%, a savings of about $223 for $150,000 of coverage; rates for the mainland areas of Currituck, Dare, Hyde and Pamlico Counties will do down 8.9%, a savings of $189 for $150,000 of coverage. The NC Rate Bureau had requested a 35% increase for barrier island territories and a 10% increase for inland northeastern coastal territories.

Hugh Willey North Carolina clearly has an insurance commissioner who understands how insurance companies have worked the system. Too bad Florida has not been as fortunate.
