Why Every Home Purchase Should Include A Home Warranty


Insure Me!

Insure Me Please!

If you are or have gone through a real estate transaction you have probably had the opportunity to discuss a home warranty for the house that is being sold or purchased.

So what is a home warranty and why does it matter in a real estate transaction?

A home warranty is a service contract that provides peace of mind for a homeowner for repairs in the major systems of a home such as air conditioning, heating, duct work, water heater, kitchen appliances, electrical, and plumbing. If a failure occurs, a claim can be placed and a licensed contractor within the pool of licensed, insured & qualified contractors will be dispatched to schedule  an appointment.  Typically the service or diagnostic fee is between $50 and $100 per trade.  Please keep in mind the home warranty compliments the home owner’s insurance, but does not replace it.

The benefit’s of a home warranty are important to understand. The primary benefits are as follows:

  • Peace of mind for all parties
  • Saves money on home repairs & protect’s  the budget
  • Reduces negotiations during the transaction
  • Provides a marketing advantage to attract a buyer for properties for sale
  • Increases the likilhood of the property selling
  • Reduces liability for all parties involved
  • Reduces “after the sale” headache
