I wouldn't say it's easy, but it is possible. The prices of home insurance has gone up since the spike in Hurricanes a couple of years back. These issues are now in legislators offices & they are working on it. Older homes are more difficult to insure but newer homes are not as difficult as they are built at the highest hurricane codes.
You can get insurance, but it will depend on the age ogf the home, the roof, construction, and a few other things. I have never had a problem getting insurance for my clients, except if we have a hurricane heading towards Florida.
