Las Vegas Homeowners Lower Insurance Costs Now!

The first step is to shop around; quotes on the same home in Las Vegas can vary significantly from company to company.

Review the Comprehensive Loss Underwriting Exchange (CLUE) report.

CLUE reports detail the property’s claims history for the last five years, which insurers may use to deny coverage. Make the sale contingent on a home inspection to ensure that problems identified in the CLUE report have been resolved. Also, seek insurance coverage as soon as your offer is approved. You must obtain insurance in order to buy your home. And you don’t want to find out at closing time that the insurer has denied you coverage. Remember to maintain good credit. Insurers often use credit-based insurance scores to determine premiums.

Buy your homeowner’s and auto policies from the same company.

Companies will often offer a bundling discount. But make sure the discount really yields the lowest price. Raise your deductible. If you can afford to pay more toward a loss that occurs, your premiums will be lower. Also, avoid making claims for losses of less than $1,000. Ask about other discounts. For example, retirees who tend to be home more than full-time workers may qualify for a discount on theft insurance. You also may be able to obtain discounts for having smoke detectors, a security system, and high-quality locks (seek group discounts) if possible. If you belong to any associations or alumni organizations, check to see if they offer deals on coverage.

Conduct an annual review.

Take a look at your policy limits and the value of your home and possessions every year. Some items depreciate and may not need as much coverage. Investigate a government-backed insurance plan. In some high-risk areas, the federal or state government may back plans to lower rates. Ask your agent what’s available? Insure your house for the correct amount. Remember, you’re covering replacement cost, not market value.
