How does getting a Wind Mitigation Inspection help?
When moving to Florida, we did not know what a wind mitigation was but quickly learned how much money we could save on the home owners insurance for having certain items installed on the home we were purchasing.
The first thing we did was hire a certified home inspector from a company like GGR Home Inspections to perform the home inspection. The realtor made all the arrangement for the home inspection we just paid the cost. Fast forward we resumed getting insurance quotes to compare to some quotes we already received prior to having the wind mitigation inspection completed. The price of the home owners insurance from $9200.00 to $5300.00 annually. That was a 57% savings after being able to provide the wind mitigation report to the insurance company.
