Smart. Having a home warranty is smart! When you’re in the middle of buying a home, you’ll hear this word tossed around. Some of you may think, ehhhh I don’t need or want and extra yearly expense. Totally get that, my boyfriend said the same thing. Although, when you hear how much money you could be saving with a home warranty in place, you just might change your mind! Personally, I recommend First American for your Home Warranty Coverage. So often times in this blog you’ll hear me reference them and even talk specific circumstances where they’ve been able to pull through for me and my client!
So, what the heck is a home warranty?
A home warranty protects your budget from costly repairs by covering your major systems and appliances. Can you imagine having your AC go out over summer? Now add on having to find a reputable and reasonable contractor come out. Ya, no thanks. With home warranty coverage will save you from that hassle. First American has pre-screened and qualified individuals on hand to assist you ASAP. Additionally, they are available 24/7, 365 days of the year for emergency situations.
Okay, now what exactly is covered?
As far as First American goes, there are a few different tiers you can choose from to fit your budget! I suggest checking out their website & requesting a quote from them directly to get the most accurate pricing! Generally, the basic plan covers most major systems & appliances such as: your furnace, your plumbing, your ducting, your electrical, the list goes on… Now of course if you have a pool, or maybe A.C., you’ll need to add that on to your plan or upgrade your plan.
Sounds good… but how much is this setting me back?
LESS THAN $1/DAY. Yes. I wrote that correctly. To have your major systems and appliances repaired or REPLACED will cost you less than $1 per day. Oh, and want to know the best part? Commonly when you purchase a home, your first year is paid for by the Seller! HOW RAD IS THAT?
Oh, and if you’re selling a home… this one’s for you
SELLER’S COVERAGE! Yup. Just like a home warranty a buyer would get to protect them, there’s coverage to protect you! Having Seller’s Coverage on your home while it’s listed & in escrow can save you from some annoying repair request issues! For example; lets say you opened escrow. Then your heater decides to stop working. That Seller’s Coverage you have on your home is going to take care of that. Whether it’s repairable, or needs replacing. That coverage where you’re spending less than $1 per day just saved you THOUSANDS. You can thank me later. You know what, for anyone who sells their home with me in 2020, I’m going to provide Seller’s Coverage for you. So now you REALLY have nothing to lose!
Hopefully you now have a little more knowledge on what a home warranty is and how it works! If you want to get more information feel free to shoot me and email or check out First American’s website!
