- A Home Warranty can accelerate the sale of your home.
The same survey indicated that buyers have more confidence in
homes with warranties. This confidence can result in a quicker
sale - up to 60% faster than homes without warranty coverage.
- A Home Warranty protect the equity investment in your home.
A warranty on your home during the listing period can eliminate
many "out-of-pocket" expenses sellers sometimes experience from
unexpected breakdowns and repairs.
- A Home Warranty can reduce the potential of "after-sale"
disputes with buyers. Almost 65% of lawsuits brought by buyers
against sellers after the sale are related to property condition
problems.* Home Warranties are designed to reduce this liability,
providing peace of mind for you and your buyer. *Statistical

What you should look for in a Home Warranty
- Does the warranty include most major mechanical and electrical
systems under standard coverage? Your warranty coverage should
include the property's plumbing, electrical, air conditioning
and heating systems, preferably without any additional charges.
Burglar alarm and fire alarm systems are often omitted in warranted
electrical systems. Check the warranty contract to ensure that
these important features are included as standard coverage.
- Does the warranty cover kitchen appliances under standard
coverage? Read the warranty contract fine print to determine
if appliances are included as standard coverage for built-in as
well as stand-alone appliances included with the sale of the home,
i.e. refrigerators, stoves, etc.
- Does the warranty have limits on the number of air conditioning
and heating units covered? If your home utilizes the popular
zoned heating and air conditioning systems, make sure that the
warranty covers multiple HVAC units under standard coverage.
- Does the warranty have a square footage limitation on coverage?
If your home has more than 4,000 square feet, make certain that
standard warranty coverage accommodates today's larger homes without
- Does the standard warranty provide protection from damaging
roof leaks? Safeguarding your home's electrical and mechanical
systems should only be a part of a comprehensive warranty's program
of coverage. Look for features like roof leak repair that provide
extra protection for your home and possessions.
- Is the warranty designed to reduce the potential of "post-sale"
disputes? As a seller, your greatest benefit from a home warranty
is the protection it provides against "after-sale" problems with
buyers. For maximum protection, your warranty should include comprehensive
standard coverage for ancillary electrical/mechanical items including
attic and exhaust fans, door bells and garage door openers.
