As property insurers in Florida continue to fall, policyholders statewide can expect to pay three times more than the national annual average for coverage this year as the Insurance Information Institute (Triple-I) is projecting the state will see average annual home insurance costs reach $4,231 in 2022.

The average home insurance costs in Florida have been steadily rising, Triple-I reported. In 2020, policyholders in the state paid an average of $2,505 for coverage. A year later the average rose to $3,181.
