What to Expect – Home Warranty Coverage
We typically use Home Warranty of America for our Buyers and Sellers because they offer 13 months of coverage versus the typical 12 for a competitive price. Many buyers want the protection in their first year to hedge when cash is tight. We even get Listing coverage for our sellers when they are on the market for sale because that protection is offered for FREE. Below is a video explaining home warranties.

The question usually is: How old are your systems and which one(s) do you think you really need coverage for? Bottom line for me is this: Home Warranty coverage is a cheap safety net in real estate transactions but I would not want to have to really rely on it for a repair down the road. The fine print in home warranty agreements can frustrate you – usually at a time when you are already dealing with something unpleasant. After the home purchase, I prefer to take my chances with my contractors – knowing I will get the straight story and a reasonable price to fix it.
