Sinkholes are very common in Florida,
This might have you a little bit worried specially when you are considering buying your first home.
The Florida Department of Financial Services offers some suggestions for anyone who is thinking on buying a home.
- first of all you have to make sure the house you are interested in buying is insurable.
- Make sure that you have sinkhole coverage in your policy. Ask your agent for details about all your coverage.
- Always hire a Certified Inspector like Affordable Inspections who can help you find any signs of potential sinkhole activity.
- Consider sinkhole testing even though an insurance company should not require you to have this testing done to granting you coverage it is always a piece of mind just like your home inspection.
