Sanibel Real Estate Blog: Flood insurance after Harvey

In a statement, William H. Stander, executive director of the Florida Property & Casualty Association, said the organization can’t speculate on how Texas losses could impact Florida rates: “More importantly, all Floridians should recognize the importance of buying flood insurance, which is not covered under your homeowner’s insurance policy,” he said.

We all know it… flood insurance should be well in place before the storms. And if you are buying property, the insurers won’t write flood insurance with a storm lurking.So get it well in advance of a purchase.
