FREE Home Warranty for Home Buyers
Contents of this article...
Buying a new home, whether your first, your fifth, or…? No matter how many, there are always questions and concerns, aren’t there? Am I picking the right home? Will it work for us? Can I afford everything? Will everything stay working once I buy? All these and many more questions have run through my head more than once when I’ve been in the midst of escrow. Some never get answered – at least not til years later when you think of all the delightful memories and great friends you’ve made and know you did pick the right house. Others you can work on to some extent like – “Yes it fits my budget.” And others I can help you with. Like gifting you with a one-year Old Republic Home Warranty (value up to $500) to provide you with their platinum protection including the air conditioner! I am doing this for my buyers – whether you are purchasing a resale home or a brand new construction home (which actually gives you FOUR years protection. 😉 ).
There are other options available. And if you prefer a different one that is under $600, that could be an option. But I’ve personally used Old Republic Home Warranty for decades. No one is perfect and I’ve had one repair man totally be awful (which Old Republic took care of once we found out). But overall, I’ve been very happy with them and continue to have their coverage on my rentals. It helps me spread out the cost of any repairs over time and they’ve really saved my bacon more than once.
Not only that! Knowing you have what is sometimes referred to as home maintenance insurance coming, you won’t need to add that to your purchase offer on the house you love. If there are multiple offers but some request a home warranty plan, that can make your offer look much better. 🙂
And if you are wondering why you might need a home warranty if you buy a new home for sale? Don’t most new construction homes have a builder warranty? Yes, they usually do. And for the first year it’s awesome. After that, it’s usually just structural issues. So appliances, air conditioners and heaters, etc. generally are not covered. BUT for my clients with the New Construction Home Warranty from Old Republic, they are. I gift the new home protection warranty plan that starts at the beginning of the second year and continues to the end of the fifth year in your new home. Will you ever use it? I personally hope not. But I had that plan for a new home I purchased. And I was so grateful for it in year two when my air conditioner broke down. It saved me hundreds of dollars in repairs and got fixed fast in the middle of a heat wave!
And by the by, at the end of the year (for fifth year for new homes), you are able to renew it yourself and continue the warranty service if you would like. I’ve done that for years and never regretted it. 🙂
Here’s a bit more about the advantages to you, the home buyer, of one of these home warranty protection plans.
Thus I love to gift my buying clients with a Platinum one-year Old Republic Home Warranty including air conditioning coverage and with only a $60 trade call fee. This is my thank you for buying your home using my real estate services.
FREE Home Warranty for Sellers
I think it’s just as important for sellers to have a home warranty protection plan. That way, if a covered item breaks during escrow, it can be fixed easily and inexpensively. Plus, having an Old Republic home protection warranty that can be transferred to the buyer can be an extra enticement to get more buyers looking at your home for sale. And that can lead to more and possibly higher quality offers. Not only will your buyers enjoy some extra peace of mind in knowing that all of their major systems are generally covered for a period of 1 year after closing, but you as the home owner get the same coverage during the term of your listing and at no charge to you. Again, it’s my gift to you to say thank you for using me to sell and close escrow on your home.* As Old Republic explains…
