Homeowners in Florida are left stranded if they're looking for property coverage from the nation's largest home insurer. This past February, State Farm caused a stir when it announced it would stop writing new homeowner policies in Florida due to a state law that limits the rates insurance companies can charge for property insurance. Revenue losses due to hurricane settlements have forced the company to abandon 50,000 policies along the state's coast. The company also contended with California wildfire claims and the housing downturn, and annual sales grew just 1.8%.
