“TALLAHASSEE – Diane Jenkins remembers when her homeowners insurance premiums were as low as $600 a year, and she laughs.
“Those days are long gone.
“Jenkins and her family live in a two-story Tampa house built in 1919 and valued at $350,000. She has paid as much as $5,500 yearly in premiums to Citizens Property Insurance Corp., the state’s insurer of last resort. She is now with another insurer and still pays a hefty $4,300, she says.”
