Best home insurance companies in Nevada

As you research Nevada homeowners insurance companies, there are several factors that you may want to take into consideration. Understanding what you are looking for in a company — the lowest price, certain coverage options or specific policy features — may help you best understand what company is right for you.

Bankrate’s insurance editorial team analyzed the average premiums from the largest home insurance carriers in Nevada by market share. We also reviewed each company’s available coverage, discounts and J.D. Power customer satisfaction scores.

If you need Nevada homeowner’s insurance, you may want to get quotes from the following companies:

Home insurance company Average annual premium for $250K dwelling J.D. Power score
American Family $645 854/1,000
Country Financial $1,720 830/1,000
Farmers $1,155 813/1,000
State Farm $963 835/1,000
USAA* $636 882/1,000

*Not officially ranked by J.D. Power due to eligibility restrictions

American Family

American Family homeowners insurance comes with all the basic coverage you expect in a homeowners insurance policy, plus the option to add endorsements for more protection. To get a cheaper rate, you might qualify for discounts for being a loyal customer, paying in full and having a recently renovated home. American Family also has a diminishing deductible program.

Country Financial

Country Financial earned a top spot in J.D. Power’s 2021 U.S. Home Insurance Study for overall customer satisfaction. The average premium is more expensive than Nevada’s average, but you may have the option to customize your policy with add-on coverage for sump pump failure, countertop burns, identity theft and more. The company also has several discounts that could help you save money.

Farmers has an average premium that is higher than Nevada’s average, but you may want to get a quote if you are looking for a policy that you can customize. Farmers’ home insurance policies come in three levels: standard, enhanced and premier. Within the levels, you can add optional coverage to tailor your policy to your needs. And you might be able to lower your premium with discounts, like savings for non-smokers and for homes with security systems.

State Farm

State Farm is the biggest home insurance company in the country based on market share. State Farm’s home insurance coverage is fairly standard, but the company offers a few discounts that can help Nevada homeowners get a lower rate. State Farm also has helpful online tools and resources, plus a user-friendly mobile app. If you are looking for optional coverage, State Farm offers a few endorsements, including options to cover your musical instruments, jewelry and lawn decorations.

USAA has the cheapest average premium on our list, but the caveat is that it only sells coverage to active duty and retired military personnel and their families. If you qualify for USAA insurance, you may be able to take advantage of the company’s excellent customer service, reliable coverage and discounts. Although the company does not qualify for official ranking with J.D. Power due to its eligibility restrictions, it consistently receives high customer satisfaction scores.

How much is homeowners insurance in Nevada?

The average cost of homeowners insurance in Nevada is $822 per year for a policy with $250,000 in dwelling coverage. For comparison, the average cost of home insurance in the United States is $1,312 per year. Nevada homeowners pay about 37% less than the average American for their insurance coverage.

Home insurance in Nevada is cheaper than in many bordering states. In California, the average annual home insurance premium is $1,014, and in Arizona, homeowners pay an average of $1,189 per year. A number of factors go into determining home insurance premiums. It’s possible that the costs for materials and labor are cheaper in Nevada, which would lower the cost of claims. Parts of Nevada may also be at a lower risk for home damage overall.

Home insurance in Nevada

Homeowners in Nevada may want to be aware of the common causes of damage in the state. Having this information might make it easier to know what home insurance coverage to purchase to best protect your finances.

Common causes of loss in Nevada

Nevada sees its fair share of storms and other natural disasters. Some common causes of home damage in Nevada include:

  • Flooding: Especially in southeast Nevada, floods are relatively common. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) reported an average claim payout of $36,500.
  • Water damage: Other kinds of water damage, including damage from water backup, heavy rains causing roofs to leak and broken pipes, are also common in Nevada.
  • Wildfires and smoke damage: Like many states in the western part of the country, wildfires are a threat for much of the year and can cause widespread damage.
  • Hailstorms and thunderstorms: These storms can cause damage to the exterior of your home and can compromise its structure, leading to interior damage.
  • Earthquakes: Parts of Nevada are at an increased risk for earthquakes, which can happen unexpectedly and cause devastating damage.

Once you understand the common cause of loss in your area, you may better know what coverage options are appropriate for your policy.

Home insurance coverage options in Nevada

Most Nevada homeowners insurance companies offer basic homeowners insurance, plus a variety of endorsements for additional protection. Here are some other insurance coverage types that Nevada homeowners might want to consider:

  • Flood insurance: Flood damage is not covered by standard homeowners insurance policies. You will need a flood insurance endorsement or a separate flood insurance policy to be covered.
  • Earthquake insurance: Homeowners insurance policies generally do not cover earthquake damage automatically, but you may be able to add it as an endorsement. If you are in a high-risk area, you may need a separate earthquake insurance policy.
  • Water backup insurance: Water damage caused from backed up sewer or drain lines is not an automatic coverage and must be added by endorsement. This kind of damage is more common in basements and crawl spaces but can occur from any sewer or drain line.

If you are unsure what coverage options may be best for your situation, talking with an agent might be helpful.
