In America, we live in the fast lane. Between work and bedtime there never seems to be enough hours to get dinner cooked and the laundry done. And when your air conditioner or refrigerator breaks, the hassle can be damaging to your tight schedule.
Unexpected home repairs can also be costly, causing homeowners to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars annually to maintain their homes. If this sounds all too familiar to you, what you may not know is that a home warranty can prevent the weight of these costs from falling on you.
Home warranties, often less than $500 per year, cover the breakdown of home systems and appliances. According to recent studies, nearly 72 percent of real estate professionals across the country recommend home warranties to their clients and 90 percent of California real estate transactions close with one.
The benefits of a home warranty are not limited to the low cost; they also provide invaluable support. It can be difficult to find a contractor or technician that you trust to enter your home and perform quality repairs in a timely manner. Many people have had poor experiences with disreputable contractors, which only adds to the frustration of a sudden expense.
Your insurance company can assist in the daunting task of finding the right contractor for the job. For example, American Home Shield works with a network of over 11,000 qualified contractors who are continually evaluated on quality, cost, and professionalism by surveying homeowners. Last year alone, American Home Shield covered over 1.2 million homes’ repairs with its warranties and performed over 2.3 million service calls across the nation.
When your home warranty ensures that your home remains in peak condition, you have more time to spend with your loved ones and do what’s important to you.
