In 2019, Citizens Insurance, the state-created and taxpayer-backed insurance company of last resort, ordered 2,200 home inspections. By the end of 2023, the company estimates that it will have ordered about 300,000 home inspections.
That’s more than a 100-fold increase in inspections, compared to a few short years ago. The number of properties the state company insures has roughly doubled over that time frame. \
