“Due to the constant and inevitable weather damage Floridians face every year, Florida has some of the highest home insurance rates
in the country. Since insurance carriers sustain significant
financial losses, there aren’t many insurance options to choose from.
Because you own your home, you can cancel your insurance policy and save the money, but think about it very carefully before you do. Carrier options are so limited in your area and you may not be able to find other coverage if you change your mind.
Home insurance covers much more than just the structure of your home. If you have a catastrophic loss, you would also lose all of your personal property. Personal property includes things like:
All of this would add up to much more than $5,000.
Liability is also covered as a part of your home policy. Not only are you protected from a lawsuit if someone gets hurt on your property, but if you injure someone accidentally while you are away from home, you will be covered up to the limits of your policy as well.
If you are one of the lucky few that has several hundreds of thousands of dollars in the bank and can afford to replace your home and belongings without any assistance, then you can afford to cancel the policy.
