Some sellers will offer home warranties as an incentive with the home. However, more and more buyers are purchasing their own home warranties in order to avoid unexpected repair and replacement expenses. Make sure to contact your Texas Hill Country Realtor® to discuss your options.
Home warranties are renewable contracts with service providers that cover replacements and repairs of the home. These contracts provide not only qualified service providers, but the price of the repairs and replacements as well.
There are several companies offering these home warranty contracts. The coverage may differ slightly, but most contracts cover heating, air conditioning, and most appliances – some companies offer additional protection for items such as pools, hot tubs, and other spa equipment.
Home warranties can also be taken out for rental properties, allowing the owner to avoid repair and replacement expenses throughout the year. This can help owners avoid not only the financial obligation, but also the stress of dealing with the repairs or replacements themselves.
