Think You’re In Good Hands? Think Again: Insurance Info from Pensacola Real Estate News

Homeowners insurance is a big expense in Pensacola Florida, and all along the gulf coast. Since the hurricane seasons of 2004 and 2005, insurance on real estate has risen dramatically, making it harder for people to afford to purchase homes.  I understand that Allstate Insurance has stopped writing homeowners insurance in the state of Florida, as have other large companies. While you may be able to go to an Allstate office to get a homeowners policy, it won’t be through Allstate.  It would be underwritten through another company, such as Citizens.

I recently came across a couple of posts regarding Allstate that I wanted to share with my Pensacola Real Estate news readers.

I was speaking with two attorneys recently and they were discussing insurance settlements. Both were in agreement that Allstate was the most difficult company to work with when it came to winning claims for their clients. Shortly thereafter, I came across a post by the Pensacola Beach Blogger regarding Allstate. If you are considering purchasing insurance, I highly recommend reading his article. You can find it at the link below.

And if that is not enough to get you hot under the collar, here is another web page I found with consumer issues with Allstate.

If you are moving to Pensacola Florida and will be needing insurance, contact a good real estate agent to help you find a great value on a home. Your agent should also be able to offer good advice on where to get quality affordable insurance coverage. At least after reading this article, you have an idea of which company you might want to avoid.
