You’re preparing to sell your home, and you’ve taken all the right steps. You’ve contacted an agent to represent you and to market your home, taken care of needed repairs, cleaned up the yard, and given your home the “white glove” treatment. How else can you attract buyers and a full price offer?
What buyers want when they purchase a home is peace of mind. With a policy called a home warranty, you can practically guarantee it! A home warranty is particularly attractive to prospective buyers if your home is more than fifteen years old, or if your major appliances (including heat and air) have long passed their younger days.
These warranties cost just a few hundred dollars, and will cover the cost of repairs to or replacements for the appliances and systems in your home. Imagine the confidence this will inspire in buyers, who will understand immediately that they won’t have any unplanned repair expenses after their purchase. A blown heat pump or leaking dishwasher are corrected with a phone call and very small service call fee.
Of course, a home warranty is a valuable policy regardless of whether you’re selling or buying, and experience shows that many buyers choose to renew their coverage after the seller’s contract expires. When it comes to home ownership, peace of mind is like money in the bank!
