I’m trying to get an idea of whether or not its “worth it” to consider a move to Broward County for a job I’m looking into. I get the idea (from previous questions) that inland is the best route in terms of affordability but I need to balance that with a good community to raise a family (schools, crime, etc.)

4 Thoughts on In Broward County, FL, on a 200-250K house, anyone have any rough estimates on annual insurance and taxes?

    Insurance will depend on whether the home is east or west of I95. A policy with a 250k limit west of I95 is costing about 5k to insurance….at least that what my brother is telling me.

    Taxes will depend on location (water front, golf course, etc). I would budget at least 5k. check here:

    I heard that FL has very high rate for home insurance because of the hurricane and the property taxes are very high it goes by the % of the buying price, so think twice before you buy.

    I am a mortgage lender in FL and do substantial business in the Broward/Dade and surrounding areas. Homeowners Insurance is running 3K to 5K depending on home age, pool, and coverage needed (limits).
    Taxes are also about 4K to 5K but if you know the address that you are looking at, you can look up the taxes online. If you are using a Realtor most MLS listings state the taxes, HOA and other fees associated with the property.
    Hope this helps,
