Buying a Home In Jacksonville? Don't Forget Flood Insurance

If you are planning to buy a home in Jacksonville, you should factor in the cost of flood insurance in your closing costs

Even if you are not in a flood zone or near a body of water, your home can still be damaged by rising water.   And if you don't have flood insurance, your homeowner's insurance may not cover your losses. This year's epic rainfall in Jacksonville  from tropical storms Beryl and Debby is a soggy reminder of the importance of being fully insured. If you're not in a flood zone, flood insurance is very affordable.
