Should I ask the seller for a home warranty? Yes…In Austin Texas it is common place for a buyer to ask a seller to pay for a home warranty for the first year they own a home. There is a convenient blank in the contract to insert an amount for the request. Many companies are in the market place offering different plans for coverage. A buyer should review the different plans to see what they offer so they make a decision.
You never know when a dishwasher or AC unit could fail and it is nice to have coverage for these larger ticket items. You will also be given the option to renew the coverage after the first year. I’ve had many clients always maintain coverage because they had several items replaced that would have cost them a lot of out of pocket costs. I’ve had others never had any systems fail and never used it.
You never know until you need it….that’s when home warranties just like home insurance are a good thing to have in place!
