Where's the best place to find home insurance for a property in Florida?

I bought a property in Ft. Lauderdale. I'm trying to find an affordable home insurance policy in Florida, but it's been hard. Where's the best place to look?

Answer
“Congratulations on your new home!
Florida is one of the most expensive states in the US for home insurance. Because of the high incidence of natural disasters, home insurance in Florida tends to be more expensive than in other states, with an average of about $1,350 per year. The closer you get to the coast, the more the rates increase.
There are a few top-rated providers in Florida who have many satisfied customers, such as:
If you already got quotes from these companies and they weren’t in your budget, you can try speaking with your car insurance. They may provide discounts for bundling your home and auto policies together.
If that doesn’t work, you may want to shop around with an independent agent online or use the free Jerry app to find a good rate. Jerry pulls quotes from the top providers and delivers the best deals to your phone.
While rates will be higher in Florida than in other states, that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to find good coverage at a low price. Keep shopping around and you’ll find something good for you!”
