Home Warranty Companies

Early in the listing and buying process, you’ll want to consider selecting a home warranty - a residential service contract that provides repair and replacement coverage for many of the home’s essential operating systems and appliances.

In the box below are links to several home warranty company websites, where you may view plans and upgrades. As you review this material, please feel free to contact us with any questions. Once you have selected the company you prefer, we will order the warranty for you.

If you’re the Seller, why offer a warranty?                                                                                 Nearly all home sales result in the seller providing a home warranty. Offering a warranty early on brings you several key benefits:                                                                                

  • It allows you to submit claims for future conditions that arise.
  • It minimizes frustration and costly repairs before, during and after the sale of your home.
  • It gives potential buyers peace of mind, knowing certain operating systems and appliances are covered by the warranty.
What happens next?                                                                                                        
Once you have selected the company you prefer, we will order the home warranty for you:  
  • As our client you have the added benefit of being covered at no cost during the listing     period.
  • At closing, the cost of the warranty is subtracted from your proceeds and the warranty   transfers to the new homeowner.​


If you’re the Buyer, ask about a warranty…                                                                        
One important step in purchasing your new home is selecting a home warranty.

Why have a warranty?

During the first year you’ll want to focus on personalizing your new home with updates such as new paint colors and new furnishings – and not have to worry about home repairs. 

By arranging for a warranty now, you will enjoy these benefits:

  • It allows you to focus on other important details once we find your dream home and rush to submit an offer. 
  • It provides a convenient process to schedule repairs and offers budget protection.
  • It gives you peace of mind.

Some Sellers order a warranty to cover the home during the listing period and the Buyer for one year after closing. If the Seller has pre-ordered a warranty, it is common to accept that policy.

What happens next?
After making your selection, please let us know. We will be able to order the warranty for you as soon as we have the contract to purchase a home.
