A HOME WARRANTY IS ALMOST A MUST HAVE!
You should always have your agent request that the seller pay for a home owner’s warranty.
Sellers have been willing to offer a home owner warranty to afford the buyer comfort in knowing that if something mechanical goes wrong the buyer can get it fixed for as little as $100.00.
How Does The Warranty Work?
The home warranty works as follows:
When you encounter a mechanical problem e.g. furnace, you call the 800 number provided in your warranty. Do not call a service repairman. The warranty company will provide you with the number of the company. The company will come out and determine if it is a warranty claim. If so, they will either repair the item or replace it. Your cost will only be the deductible.
Home owner’s warranties are renewable; thereby providing on-going protection for the buyer.
