Florida Residents; Apply For A Free Wind Inspection On Your Home

Industry Observer with No longer practicing real estate as of 2008.

Go to MySafeFloridaHome.com and apply to see if you qualify for a free wind inspection on your home.  The website states the following:

To help Floridians identify how they can strengthen their homes against hurricanes and to reduce hurricane damage exposure in our state, the My Safe Florida Home program is offering free wind inspections by qualified hurricane mitigation inspectors to eligible homeowners.  

This is not an entitlement program. You must apply and obtain approval in order to receive the free inspection. Requesting or obtaining an inspection does not guarantee or automatically qualify you for a grant. Floridians whose homes have undergone wind certification and hurricane mitigation inspections approved by the Department of Financial Services may be eligible to apply for matching grants up to $5,000.

Simply click here to view the application and see if you qualify.

Also, if you do not qualify for the free wind inspection, you may still pay the $150 fee yourself to still get an inspection.  Simply contact one of the firms directly.

From what I can tell, it is absolutely FREE to submit an application....so GO DO IT!!

It is great to see all the windstorm breaks homeowners can get.  Insurance in Florida is high enough.

Big News for Florida Homeowners

Quorum Services has been given the opportunity by the Department of Financial Services to perform a limited number of Free Wind Mitigation Inspections 

Since the My Safe Florida Home Program exhausted funding for free wind inspections earlier this year, homeowners have had to hire an inspection professional in order to benefit on premium discounts for existing wind resistant features, as required under Florida Statute 626.0629 for all insurers in the State.

This is a great opportunity for Florida homeowners especially in these difficult  economic times. 

As the number of inspections is limited you must act quickly.  Call us today to apply and reserve a seat on our waiting list.
