When you’re in the process of selling your home, one of the best selling features that you can offer is a home warranty. This important coverage can provide potential buyers with both confidence and peace of mind. Protect your home during and after the sale with a home warranty.

Protect your home before and during the saleA home warranty is not the same thing as having homeowners insurance. But, it can help with the cost of major home systems such as the furnace or water heater, as well as appliances, if they should break down.

Having this type of protection will typically garner more interest in your home – especially from those who may have concerns about future repair costs. In most cases, a home warranty can be purchased for between $300 and $500 per year – far less than it would cost to replace, or even to repair, many of the items that are covered.


Where to Find Good Home Warranty Coverage?

When seeking good home warranty coverage, we recommend that sellers offer a 1-year warranty on their listings from HSA Home Warranty. This particular plan is actually a seller warranty, so it will protect your home while it’s listed. Then, the warranty will convert over to the buyer on the day of closing.

One of the really nice features about this plan is that there are no up-front costs to you as the seller. Rather, the $389 fee is collected at closing. It also has some great features that can help you with selling your home – such as the deductible of only $75. Given the average price of repair – and certainly given the price of appliance replacement – literally one service call would more than make up for that!
