agent working with client on desktop computer to talk about home warranty coverage

You may already know the many benefits and advantages that home warranty coverage can bring to transactions. Adding a home warranty, such as the American Home Shield Home Warranty offered by our trusted partners, can help protect you from unexpected, covered breakdowns from listing to closing and beyond.

Here’s when to talk to your agent about this industry-leading protection.

At listing

A home warranty can help protect a sellers’ budget and keep sales on track if an unexpected covered breakdown occurs while the home is on the market. Adding American Home Shield home warranty coverage can also help distinguish listings from others on the market and help reassure potential buyers.

During the home search process

American Home Shield’s real estate home warranties were specifically designed for real estate transactions with input from the pros and unique real estate plans give you the protection you need.

When you are concerned about the age or condition of systems and appliances

You can get protection regardless of the age or appearance of a covered item. No maintenance records or inspections are required.

When relocating

When moving from another area, you won’t know who to call when a home system or appliance breaks down. When covered items break due to normal wear and tear, the nationwide American Home Shield network is ready to help.

After home inspection results

With a home warranty, sellers can help mitigate unexpected covered issues from the home inspection to keep the sale on track. If a listing isn’t already covered by a home warranty, buyers can add their own post-purchase. That way they can focus on making their new house their home rather than worrying about pre-existing issues.

At closing

Many homebuyers choose to add American Home Shield coverage at closing. Breakdowns will happen, and the cost of repairing or replacing them could be costly. With an American Home Shield Home Warranty, buyers pay a consistent monthly fee and a set Trade Service Call Fee when they request service, making it easier to budget for their new home purchase. 

After closing

Buyers have up to 60 days after closing to purchase an American Home Shield Home Warranty at special prices.
