How I purchased home insurance in Florida

My family just recently moved to Florida and as we were purchasing our home, you guessed it, the bank required us to purchase home insurance in Florida.  Well, being new to the area and not knowing which way to turn and I turned to my trusted “Google”.  What I found was something amazing and super easy.

There are sites that will actually help you find homeowners insurance like  All you have to do is submit your information one time and you start receiving insurance quotes almost immediately.  How awesome is that?  No searching through the phone book or the local chamber of commerce to find agents.  Just fill out some basic information, hit submit and get quotes.

Now the one thing you need to take into consideration when purchasing Florida home insurance is which policy is best for me and my family.  Every insurance company has their own unique offerings when it comes to homeowners policies.

Some companies will even insure your personal items no matter where they are in the world.  If you are a traveler, says it is a perk that can apply to you. Others may even cover the contents of your freezer in the event of a prolonged power outage.  My mother and her on sale buying habits would definitely benefit from that little perk right there.

The perks you get are not necessarily the best way to choose your FL home insurance.  You really need to study the quotes you receive and compare the policies to make sure you are purchasing the policy that is most relevant to your needs.

Always read the fine print

Florida Insurance Quotes says be sure to read the fine print. My mom used to always say “what the large print giveth, the small print taketh away”.  Nothing could be worse than feeling that your home is completely covered and then having a claim and finding out that it is not.  Do your research and in the end, you should be able to feel at ease with your selection.

There is definitely peace of mind in knowing that your home is covered under a homeowners policy.  While no one really expects to ever have to use it, it’s just nice knowing it’s there if you need it.  It truly is a great method for protecting one of your most valuable investments.  And I know everyone wants to keep a roof over their family’s heads.
