Protect your mobile home with a quote from Kin today.
Everybody knows: Miami is hot – and cool. Hot beaches. Hot food. Hot nightlife. Cool people. Cool neighborhoods. Cool ocean breezes.
Living in a mobile home is a smart and economical way to enjoy this diverse and exciting coastal metropolis. But don’t forget: You still need mobile home insurance to protect this valuable asset when you experience fire, theft, or wind damage.
There’s no state law that requires you to get mobile home insurance in Florida. However, mortgage lenders and mobile home parks often require it. And there is a Miami-Dade County law that makes it illegal to store your mobile home anywhere other than an approved mobile home park.
Even if that weren’t all true, insuring your mobile home is a good idea. Why? Let’s start with the fact that mobile homes are a major investment. According to the US Census bureau, the average cost of a new mobile home is:
$121,400 in the US.
$120,200 in the South.
Moreover, mobile homes, just like any home, are exposed to perils that could cause damage. The Insurance Information Institute notes that mobile homes are vulnerable to tornadoes, but fire, theft, vandalism, and hail damage are also issues mobile home owners have to contend with.
Note: Florida state law requires insurers to replace mobile homes after a total loss; however, the owner must give the insurer the title to the home. The insurer then must present the destroyed home’s title to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
Mobile home insurance can be expensive and difficult to get. Premiums range from several hundred to over $3,000 per year. Generally, premiums for Florida mobile home insurance are based on several factors, including:
The home’s age, condition, and size.
The coverage limits.
Your claims history.
One reason for the cost is that insurers consider mobile homes a high-risk category. But that means you may be able to find more affordable coverage if you:
Use anchor ties that fully meet city codes. (We require this for coverage)
Properly install handrails where there are three or more steps.
Reside in the mobile home you own.
Maintain your home and surrounding property.
Safe, well-maintained homes simply cost less to insure. Get a quote now if you'd like to know what your premium would be with Kin.
