Home Warranties

Why should you encourage your clients to purcahse a Hmoe Warranty as part of their Real Estate Transaction?

  • Lessen your liability
  • Reduce after-sale disputes
  • Increase your repeat & referral business from satisfied customers
  • Financial help with repair costs allows peace of mind for clients
  • Home Warranties pick-up where insurance companies leave off
  • A home warranty is a highly effective marketing and negotiating tool, particularly helpful when selling older homes.
  • Reports indicae that home warranties help sell homes up to 15% faster and can  help obtain 2.2% higher selling price
  • Protects against repair and/or replacement on covered systems while the home is on the market
  • No cost for basic coverage until the home is sold in most cases.
