Am I Required to Buy Flood Insurance in Florida?

If you live in a high-risk flood zone in Florida, you will be required by law to purchase a flood insurance policy.

Natural disasters, flash floods, and even new construction projects that change how water drains could potentially damage your property and wreak economic havoc on your home. Talk to a GreatFlorida agent to get an affordable flood insurance policy today.
