Boy, do I love having a Home Warranty!

Boy do I Love Having A Home Warranty. And do i love for all of my buyers to have a warranty as well.

Let me start this by saying, I love to sleep in a cool house! That's not to say that a home temperature of 56 degrees at 9am is my ideal. But, I must say that it's alot easier to stomach knowing that I spent the extra money when I purchased this home for a Home Warranty.

I spent $55 dollars yesterday for a new "furnace ignitor" which would normally have cost about what I spent for the whole warranty.

As a Realtor, I  always recommend to my sellers that they purchase a warranty for their home when they sell. It does a couple of things. First of all, it means that when he sells, he doesn't have to worry about things breaking after closing, like my garage door opener did the day after we closed.

My seller was in Germany. How easy would it have been to get him to take care of it? I didn't have to worry about it. The second thing it does is let buyers know that in the event there is a problem, they won't have to deal with delays, negotiations, disputes or any other nonsense. I called my warranty company at 9am and the problem was fixed by 1pm, no muss, no fuss.

I also ask for a warranty for all of my buyers when they make an offer. Other than on Bank owned property, I seldom have a problem talking them into it.

There are several great companies out there, and they aren't terribly expensive. Especially compared to buying a furnace ignitor in January! If you have any questions about Home Warrantys, give me a call! 435-840-5029. Here my message, Boy do I love having a home warranty.
