According to a report by the National Association of Realtors, Texas homeowners pay the highest insurance premiums among all states. This is not new news. High homeowners insurance premiums have been a problem in Texas for quite some time. Some critics claim that lack of insurance regulation is to blame. My knee jerk Texas-style libertarianism would strongly disagree with that assessment. I think hurricanes, floods, tornadoes might have a little something to do with it. Title insurance in this state is highly regulated and title insurance premiums are some of the highest in the country as well. Despite these high premiums, home buyers should not fear. Houston real estate is known for being some of the most affordable in the country. Check out the article in the Houston Chronicle for more information about homeowners insurance premiums in Houston and Texas.
