St. Petersburg, nicknamed the Sunshine City, has more than tropical weather and one of the nation’s top-ranked beaches. With over 1,000 special events and festivals each year, it’s not surprising that more than 260,000 people enthusiastically call St. Pete’s home.
As a condominium owner, you’re usually responsible for protecting everything within the four walls of your individual unit. The right condo insurance, also called an HO6 policy, does exactly that. Policies cover your unit, the contents of your unit, your personal liability, and what your condo association requires you to cover.
Unfortunately, HO6 policies in Florida are pricey – but they don’t have to be.

The situation in Florida is pretty dire when it comes to property insurance. On average, the state has the most expensive homeowners insurance in the country: $2,165 per year.

Add in the fact that St. Pete sits on the Gulf of Mexico and chances are condo owners pay high premiums to insure their property.
