Theirs is a national company too, their home is located on acreage outside of Florissant. There have been two more massive and very costly wild fires in the region since you lived there in 2010, the Waldo Canyon fire in 2012 (346 homes destroyed) and the Black Forest fire in 2013 (511 homes destroyed) and further north there was also the High Park Fire in 2012 which destroyed 259 homes. Perhaps in light of these recent fire events some of the insurance companies are being more conservative in their policies?

Our house is a rental now, so the rates did go up because of that, but still haven't increased due to the fires. We're on a little over 5 acres about 7 miles NW of Divide near Spring Valley.

The Black Forest fire was east and north of Colorado Springs, but Waldo Canyon was a little closer. We have friends who lost their home in Mountain Shadows from the Waldo Canyon fire, and were renting in Black Forest until their house was rebuilt, then lost the house in Black Forest, too. They decided to move to Littleton and get away from the forests.

That is some bad luck!
