An emerging trend sees homeowners, including Chicago native Steve Swanson, opting to forgo homeowner’s insurance, relying on self-insurance through personal rainy-day funds. This shift is driven by soaring premiums attributed to increased natural disasters, particularly in coastal and inland states. In Florida, rising ocean temperatures contributing to stronger hurricanes have led to a staggering 300% increase in home insurance premiums over the last five years.
