Home Warranty - Don't be caught without it!

 January 26, 2011

Ron Harmon on Zillow


A Home Warranty is basically an insurance policy. It insures the mechanical, electrical and plumbing parts and systems of a house. A Home Warranty provides the same comfort as any insurance against unforeseeable events. Many homeowners claim that their warranties have more than paid for themselves.  At TriWest, Realtors, we encourage all of our clients to purchase a home warranty that fits their budget. 

Your home is most likely one of your largest investments. Unexpected repair or replacement costs can easily strain your budget and members of your family. Finding an approved and insured contractor to solve your problem can be stressful and inconvenient not to mention costly. A home warranty cannot prevent systems or appliances from breaking down, but it can help make covered repairs or replacement easier and less costly.  I found the best deal at American Home Shield for my home but there are numerous other companies that offer competitive prices. 

While each Home Warranty company operates a little differently, there are some basics that apply. Each has a "basic" plan that covers routine heating, plumbing and electrical systems. In addition, they offer optional coverage for air conditioning, pools and spas, appliances, etc. charged on a per item basis. Some companies offer more comprehensive "basic" plans than others, including such features as irrigation systems and garage doors openers.

Many homeowners don't realize that Home Warranties can be quite affordable.  The amount of security it provides makes for a better nights sleep.  Just knowing that if the heating unit breaks down, a small deductible will take care of the service call and the repairs. 

American Home Shield may not be at the top of the list but they have been good to me.  Their number is 866-406-0440.

Have a good day!

We manage rental homes and recommend all owners to also get home warranties.

Agree with Kristal, I always gry to get either a buyer or seller to pay for the home warranty, it is money well spent!

I often buy the home warranty for my buyers.  I have breathed a sigh of relief after talking to a new homeowner about a systems problem if I've been able to recommend they call the home warranty company.  I often buy the policy for listings, too.  The charge is very small and it is a relief to have it if a drain plugs up, or whatever.
