With a population just under 200,000 people, Tallahassee is the eighth most populous city in the state – and for good reason. Tally offers what most people want in a city: steady job opportunities and a low cost of living, plus the warm, sunny weather Florida is known for.
But living in Tallahassee is not without its risks, which is why you need condo insurance. Policies (also called HO6 policies) protect you from losses connected to your unit, personal property, and liability.
Let’s take a look at how much condo insurance costs in Tallahassee and how we may be able to help you save.
Condo insurance costs
Most Floridians know how expensive home insurance is in their state, but the same is true for condo insurance. A quick internet search shows yearly premiums between $1,000 and $1,400. However, the average Kin member in Tallahassee pays just $906 per year for their condo insurance.*
There’s no guarantee that your premium will be at or below the average, but we do all we can to keep costs down for our members. How? By analyzing granular insurance data.
Like all insurance companies, we rely on information about your condo, like:
These and other factors help us figure out what it costs to cover your condo. But by considering more specific details about your particular condo, we can provide quotes that are more accurate for your actual risk. This often results in more affordable condo insurance.
Kin condo insurance discounts
Another way to save on condo insurance is to ask about discounts. With us, you may earn a discount for:
Having strong wind mitigation features.
Installing fire protective devices.
Living in a secured or gated community.
Condo insurance deductibles
While you can’t buy less coverage than is needed to replace your condo after a loss, you have some leeway in choosing your deductible. A larger deductible typically decreases your insurance costs. However, you want to choose deductibles you can afford paying after a major loss.
We offer the following condo insurance deductible options in Tallahassee.
Taken all together, our average condo owner reports saving over $400 when they switched to Kin.**
What risks do Tallahassee condo owners face?
Tallahassee, like all of Florida’s Gulf Coast, is vulnerable to hurricanes, tornadoes, and other severe weather events. Statistically, hurricanes directly impact Tallahassee on average once every eight years – or 22 hurricanes in the last 171 years. As recently as September, 2023, Hurricane Idalia hit Florida’s Big Bend region as a Category 4 storm, bringing 125 mph sustained winds.
But hurricanes aren’t the only weather risk Tallahassee condo owners face. The area’s extreme wind risk also comes from:
Tropical storms. These strike Tallahassee once every 3.5 years – or 50 tropical storms in 171 years.
Tornadoes. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Tallahassee currently has a relatively high risk for tornadoes.
Floods. Risk Factor rates Tallahassee’s flood risk as minor, but FEMA flood maps do show several flood zones that mean you’re required to get flood insurance.
As a condo owner, you also have to protect your home from property crime, like theft, arson, and burglary. Property crimes in Tallahassee are higher than average, and your chance of becoming a victim of a property crime is one in 34.
