Home warranties good for buyers and sellers

By
Real Estate Agent with Kettley and Company

The home warranty market is a must for realtors and sellers. Buyers and buyers agents benefit from the peace of mind a warranty offers.

What? You ask, a home warranty is for sellers not buyers. Well the truth is most home warranty companies today offer the seller a warranty should something go wrong during the listing period. The warranty is not paid until closing and if the seller's home does not close. The seller does not pay for a warranty even if  a claim is filed. Check with your home warranty company to to receive the details of how the warranty protects the seller today and everyone including the buyer and the agents later on.

Home Warranties are great for both Buyers and Sellers.  We make sure all of our Buyers have a Home Warranty and try to sell the benefits to all of our Sellers, too.

Yes, I agree.  A Home Warranty is a good way for a seller to keep out of trouble.  Also less future problems for the Seller's Agent.
