Residential Service Contracts

As you approach closing day on your home, you may want to consider purchasing a Residential Service Contract. We have found them to be invaluable to buyers and sellers when unexpected repairs are needed.

  • Coverage can be purchased by a seller to cover unexpected items that may arise during the buyer's inspections.
  • As a buyer, Residential Service Contracts, also known as home warranties can save you a bundle in repair costs after you move in.
  • A Residential Service Contract covers repair or replacement of some major and minor items and components of a home. Typically, they are 1 year in duration, beginning at the time you take occupancy.
  • Many cover central air and heat, electrical, plumbing, water heater, and some appliances like refrigerators, etc.
  • The seller may offer or you may ask for them to furnish you with a Residential Service Contract.

I strongly recommend reviewing the coverage of a residential service contract, and the amount of savings and "peace of mind" that it could represent to your home purchase.

Brian: I try to get every seller to add a home warranty when they list their home. It covers them in case of loss and then transefers to the buyer whom it covers for another year. It has saved my sellers thousands of dollarinos.

You make some very good points here.  Having the residential service contract in place also helps in mitigating your risk.
