Inland homeowners to pay 9 percent more

By Laura Lewis, Reporter

North Carolina residents are going to pay more for homeowners insurance—again.

North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin has signed a settlement agreement with homeowners insurance companies that will impact coastal counties with the highest rate hikes.

The agreement represents an overall average statewide increase of 7 percent. The highest hikes are nearly 20 percent for beach coastal areas of Brunswick County, with lower increases for inland coastal areas.

The increases take effect July 1.
