In an effort to help Floridians find affordable insurance coverage for their home, the state has set up a site where you can search and compare rates in all of our counties. You will see what the rates should be for a typical Florida home. Considering that companies are still asking for rate increases, perhaps this new site will be a useful tool for many people living here. You can access this site by clicking here: http://www.shopandcomparerates.com/ I have begun to lose faith that the state will ever get a handle on the insurance situation here, but it does not hurt to see what is available out there and compare it to what you are paying.
Of course the site comes with a disclaimer "The typical rates quoted here are not guaranteed rates, but are only intended to demonstrate that rates vary significantly from company to company".
