In some area's of North America Home Warranties are fairly common, in other not. If you are trying to get reviews on different Home Warranty Companies here is a beginning of a great post. 

For two other sources look at:

About Home Warranty Plans ~ 101.

Home Warranties the Good, Bad and Ugly ~ ActiveRain Survey.

Home Warranty Companies use local vendors for service calls, depending on their relationship in that specific region a company can be excellent in one area and not so in another region.

Please leave your comments and reviews on the post below or in the ActiveRain product review section.

Over the years, I've come across quite a few people that give home warranties as closing gifts to their clients. At the same time, I've also heard enough people say something like 'those things are worth the paper they are written on' to describe the value of a home warranty. Of course, insurance is one of those things you don't need until you need it, right?

Which side of the coin do you fall on? Do you think home warranties are a must have for everyone buying a resale? Or would that money be better spent somewhere else?

How many of you out there use home warranties with your clients? Or suggest that your clients should get a home warranty? Or maybe you use it as a negotiating tactic and you encourage your sellers to offer a home warranty to help ease the buyers mind when you're getting really close to mutual agreement?

Which companies have you used for home warranties? We'd love to hear about your experience with them. Do you have one company that always comes through? Make sure they are on the list of home warranty companies in our product review section

If they aren't on the list, you can always add your favorite home warranty company here

David good subject. Over the years I have heard positive and negative toward these home warranty's. I have never bought one for a client.

We have found that it is more the rep than the actual warranty itself. He gets stuff done and takes care of us so we wouldn't use anyone else.
