Countryside, Palm Harbor, Oldsmar, Duneiden sectio Posted On: 7/6/2006 9:28:02 AM
Although Palm Harbor, Oldsmar and Duneiden is not in Clearwater they all merged together at Countryside. This is a very fast growing area, as much of Florida is. Property taxes continue to go up and Home Owners Insurance is obscene. Last year,our home insurance jumped from $700 a year to $3200 and we have never been hit by a hurricane in the 20 years I have been here. This year, my insurance will jump another 45 to 75%. Auto insurance continues to go up as well because there are so many people on the road. You rightly ask "Why don't you leave?" .. Well, I have just sold my house and getting out my winter clothes.
Watch out for Home Insurance in Florida Posted On: 4/29/2006 8:04:18 PM
I live in Clearwater at Countryside and it is a beautiful area. My home insurance jumped 400% this year. The Florida legislature has already approve another 45% increase coming this year (2006) and Citizen's Insurance (the State Insurance Company)has gone back and ask for another 16%, which they will no doubt, get. If you are moving to Florida, be sure you check your home owner's rates before you buy, then add at least 55% to the current rate and you will be somewhere in the ballpark.
