Home Warranty Help for My Real Estate Clients

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Real Estate Roseville CA CalBRE#01966207

I really appreciate my real estate clients.We spend a lot of time together, planning and working toward their real estate goals, whether buying or selling a house in Roseville CA and the surrounding area.

One of the many lovely trails in Roseville CA via real estate agent blogger Kaye Swain.

I am grateful for the friendships that have blossomed as a result. And with good friends AND real estate clients, my goal is always to provide help, support, and good care during AND after the process.

One of the ways I strive to achieve this goal is by providing my buying AND selling real estate clients with home warranty protection - generally the one year  Platinum Protection with Air Conditioner plan from Old Republic Home Warranty. (And when they buy a brand new home, they get the new home warranty coverage, which actually is for FOUR years!).

This provides them AND me with extra peace of mind. That way, if something quits working, they know they are still in good hands. One of my clients recently moved into their new-to-them home. They had the inspection. The dishwasher worked fine. But a couple of weeks after they moved in, the dishwasher quit working. We got together a couple of days after and she was telling me about it. Thanks to the Home Warranty plan, she and I were able to chuckle about it and say HOORAY for Old Republic. A much happier reponse than if she knew she was facing a $200+ repair bill (Old Republic's maximum is $65) or having to buy a new dishwasher!

Another great thing about Old Republic Home Protection? They provide monthly newsletters with practical home tips to share with my real estate clients before AND after the escrow closes. Like this one! And check out the holiday fun photos I added to page 2.

I work hard to make the home buying and selling process as easy as possible for my real estate clients here in Roseville CA. And that includes before AND after the close of escrow. I really appreciate Old Republic Home Protection. They're not perfect. But I've used them for myself and for my rental properties for two decades and been very happy with them personally and professionally. It's a great way to help my clients! Kaye Swain Roseville CA REALTOR sharing client gifts

Hi, Kaye...it sounds like you really look after your clients, and that's awesome. I do the same thing. This is also a nice shout out for Old Republic Home Warranty.

Kaye, home warranties can give buyers peace of mind and do recommend them in certain transactions.

These used to be popular on Long Island years ago. I don't see them being offered often anymore...

Great idea! I've got a member special with my Chamber Membership where I'll give a home warranty if they buy or sell with me. 

I'm tucking this in the file for next year!

Kaye Swain what feedback have you received regarding the newsletters?  Do they work?  I am sending out Old Republics newsletter this week.  But I am torn between this free one and a paid one.

I have only used them as a supplement occasionally, Rhonda Eaves  - I generally write my own. But I definitely appreciate the warranties. All my clients have put them to use and been a lot happier when something broke. :)  (PS Sorry I missed seeing this sooner ;) )
