What is a Home Warranty and why do I need one?
It is an office policy that we let our clients (home buyers and sellers) knows that a home warranty is available for them to purchase, is up to them whether to buy it or not. During this conversation many of them have ask what is a home warranty and why do I need one? A home warranty is a service contract available for home buyers and sellers that will cover costly repair or will replace most frequent breakdowns of home system components and appliances regardless of age make or model.
The price and what is cover depends on the service plan, a basic plan cost around $300 and will cover items like, Electrical System, Heating System, Plumbing System, Water Heaters, Ceiling Fans, Range, Garbage Disposal, Dishwasher, among others or coverage can be expanded to cover items like; Air Condition Systems, Washer & Dryers, Pool, Spa, Garage Door Opener, Well Pump and others.
Whether someone needs one or not depends on each individual needs. I know few people that bought the service and use it saving from hundreds to thousands of dollars, one of them got their air conditioner unit (heat pump) replaced saving over $4,000, the other two got some electrical work done, one of them saved about $400 and the other one saved almost $1,000. You do the math. For more information regarding home warranties visit American Home Shield website.
