I have received a few complaints from my clients, about their home warranties.
1. One of my clients waited 4 days for a water heater. And, she paid $60 for the home visit.
2. Another, said they only did a small temporary fix to the A/C unit. They had to replace the unit, and the warranty paid nothing towards the replacement.
They will help for small things like a disposal unit. And, if the seller is offering it, take it.
However, my advice is to not depend on the Warranty to cover all expenses. Home Warranties do not guarantee stress free home ownership.

I've noticed an increase in sales of home warranty packages for buyers and sellers. I've heard many great things about them. Just be sure to shop around rates and plans!

Warranty and insurance plans are often viewed as unnecessary until something goes wrong and and you need it.

We always make buyers aware of this option and recommend coverage, especially for the first year of ownership.

Good luck,

I always recommend a home warranty to my clients for at least the first year in their new home.

It is a great safeguard for an unfamiliar property.

Absolutely yes! Home Warranties are a very good investment and pay for themselves the first time your ovens aren't working or your disposal isn't working, etc. Don't even hesitate - Buy One! Becky

Hi Pennylane

I would highly recommend to purchase a home warranty. Throughout my career I have seen my clients savings thousands of dollars by using the service calls with the home warranty.

I will be happy to recommend a few home warranty companies. Please call me at 702-612-7099
