This spells out two implications for homeowners insurance: a growing, competitive market, and increased premium prices. Whether you’re a new homebuyer or just looking to save money, here’s what to know about the best home insurance companies in Las Vegas and how much they cost.

Our study found that Travelers, Farmers, American Family and State Farm offer the cheapest, below-average rates, while Liberty Mutual and CSAA are more expensive options. Prices vary greatly between home insurance companies, which is why it’s important to shop around.

But cost should not be the only factor in choosing a company: it is about balancing price with coverage, customer satisfaction and other categories.

State Farm: best value

State Farm is our pick for the best homeowners insurance company in Las Vegas, on account of its below-average price, high customer satisfaction and widespread availability. State Farm is the largest home insurer in Nevada and the U.S., writing almost 1/5 of all policies in Nevada. 

Going with a large insurer has several advantages. State Farm’s agent network means you’ll most likely be able to find an agent close to your home, which may be important for some people. State Farm’s size also means you’ll have the opportunity to bundle multiple policies together, such as home and auto. This can mean big savings and a simplified experience.

State Farm’s customers are generally satisfied with the level of service. State Farm had a 0.20 complaint index in 2018, outperforming most other insurers. The lower NAIC complaint index the better, as it measures how many complaints a company gets relative to its size. State Farm also received a 4/5 from the 2019 J.D. Power home insurance satisfaction survey, further suggesting its above-average customer experience.

Travelers: cheapest rates

We found that Travelers had the cheapest home insurance rates in Las Vegas at $1,043 a year, which is over $500 below the city average. While affordability is important, there are other considerations with Travelers home insurance.

In the 2019 J.D. Power home insurance survey, Travelers received a 2/5 score of "below average" for overall satisfaction. We found that Travelers had a 2018 NAIC complaint index of 0.30, which measures how many complaints a company receives relative to its size, with lower numbers meaning fewer complaints. Travelers did better than the national average of 1.0, but falls short of State Farm.

If cost is your main concern in purchasing homeowners insurance, you can take advantage of Travelers discounts such as bundling multiple policies and making your home safer. If you have a green, LEED certified home, you can save an additional 5% on your home insurance policy.

USAA: best for veterans

USAA insurance policies are only available to military service members and their family, but it’s an excellent option for those who qualify. The average cost of USAA home insurance is Las Vegas is $1,848 a year, which is above the state average by about $365. However, USAA’s coverage and customer satisfaction are some of the best around.

USAA is one of only three home insurance companies to receive a 5/5 in overall satisfaction from the 2019 J.D. Power home insurance survey. USAA’s NAIC complaint index is among the lowest in Nevada at 0.21. These two reports together suggest that USAA offers excellent service to Las Vegas residents.

USAA's price tag gives you great perks. For example, USAA has partnerships with professional networks you can trust, so using its contractor, moving company, home builder and home security company relationships can give you piece of mind. Additionally, USAA works with active military members to match the billing date with their payment schedule, and provide on-base discounts.

Chubb: best for expensive homes

Chubb offers specialized home insurance policies that cover high value homes in Las Vegas. If you own such a home, you’ll want to make sure you have the right protection. Chubb’s service will most likely mean higher rates than the city average, but you'll get some perks for that extra cost.

For example, Chubb home insurance policies include identity theft protection. If your identity is compromised, Chubb will provide you a fraud specialist to help you recover quickly. Additionally, Chubb has a partnership with Wildfire Defense Systems, which is a private service that responds to wildfires. While Las Vegas is at lower risk for wildfire compared to northern Nevada, it is always better to be prepared.

Coverage for your high value home doesn’t just mean protecting your home: it also means protecting your other assets. For example, if you are found responsible for $300,000 worth of damage, but only have $100,000 of liability coverage, the remaining $200,000 is recoverable from your personal assets. Therefore, individuals with a large net worth will often higher liability limits.
