Buyers should always purchase a home warranty. This is especially the case if you are buying a short sale or foreclosure. Even a brand new home make sense with extended coverage beyond the builder and manufacturer warranties.
You can "package" a home warranty as an incentive for potential buyers. There are also options for sellers to have free home warranty coverage during the listing period. A Home Warranty makes sense even if you are not buying or selling. Home Warranties offer the convenience of one source for most repairs. When a covered system or appliance breaks, all you need to do is contact the Home Warranty Company to report the problem. A qualified, pre-screened service technician will contact you to schedule an appointment. It's just that simple.
