A Home Warranty is a WIN-WIN situation for local home buyers and sellers as well as the real estate agent. If you would like more information about our Kansas City home warranties, contact us or learn more below.
A home warranty offers buyers the peace of mind that should anything unexpected happen (due to normal, everyday wear and tear) of the home's appliances, heating, air conditioning, plumbing, and electrical systems, it will be repaired (or replaced in some cases) for you without costly fees. Also, local home buyers will not have to worry about finding a reputable repair technician that they are uncertain they can trust. This will save everyone precious time and money.
Sellers can relax knowing that they have a home warranty protecting them from costly repair expenses during the listing period, closing and sale of their home.
Our agents know that the added incentive of a home warranty makes the deal for both buyers and sellers, smooth and hassle-free. If a warranty is offered, an experienced agent will include this in their marketing plan as both a buying and selling tool. It is just another added feature for the home seller to offer the potential buyer.
A home warranty offers peace of mind for everyone. There are many different companies available that offer home warranties. However, not all warranty companies offer the same services. It is important to research a reputable company or consult your Chartwell agent for more information on finding a plan that best suits your needs. Be sure to look for a home warranty plan that covers the following:
Some plans offer additional coverage (with an additional fee) for specific home features including:
A home warranty usually costs between $300-$600 annually and carries a $50-$100 service fee for each repairable item. Most warranties usually offer one year or less of coverage time. All repairable items need to be covered in the sale of the home in order for the warranty to be effective. Some home warranty companies charge additional fees per year for added features of the home.
