Not sure what specific areas you are interested in, but if you know the county, this site (http://www.appraisers.com/consumer/tax_ass/florida.html) should give you a pretty good idea on your taxes.
I currently reside in central FL and can attest that property taxes here are about twice that of central GA, where I relocated from. As I am considering relocating yet again!, I am researching Escambia county (slightly higher rates than Marion) and Okaloosa (slightly lower rates than Marion) with even higher rates if the property is within the city limits vs county only. Of course your property insurance will be somewhat higher in the 'county' vs the 'city'.
I have read that some insurers were limiting coverages for new residents (State Farm, for one) but I personally have not experienced any problems.
