More sticker shock when you price airline flights out of RSW compared to TPA and MCO

It is private insurance. For $487 a year I am guessing that you are not in a major flood zone. My home is less than 100 yards from two separate canals so I am guessing that is considered a major flood zone.

    Proximity to a canal is less important than the property's elevation above sea level. I grew up on South Florida an we were less than 100 yards from a canal, but we never saw anything close to flooding as our property was at a higher elevation than our neighbors'.

    I'm sure if you go to the Lee County website and find out more about your flood zone, if you were so inclined.

    BTW, welcome to the Sunshine State, neighbor*.

    Well, Cape Coral is 5+ hours away from me, so 'neighbor' in a relative sense!

    Congrats man.

    The flood insurance quote is ridiculous. Is it private flood insurance or FEMA? My FEMA flood insurance was $487 for the entire year.

    And AZDuffman is right- max coverage is $250k building, $100k contents.

    Florida is great, man. See you at the beach this winter.

    My house is 1.4 miles from the gulf. And we have canals everywhere- that's a good thing (I think?) as it gives the water somewhere to go. The elevation of my lot is 10' 2" above sea level. It's in a flood zone.

    I do not think it is the canal putting you in the zone, more the hurricane surge potential. https://clovered.com/flood-zones/

    Best wishes on your move and on life in Florida.

    Florida has always reminded me of wax that has been melted flat.
