What’s a Home Warranty, why do I need it?

I don’t need a home warranty on my home, everything works fine.

We don’t need a home warranty on this home, it’s only a couple years old.

I just purchased the dishwasher 3 months ago it has a year warranty.

Is it like insurance, because we already have homeowners.


Bottom Line. Yes, you want and need a Home Warranty. The Jim Buff Team uses American Home Shield for  our providers for Home Warranties.


What is a Home Warranty or Home Protection Plan, you’re asking? It’s simply a protection plan for your home. For a home seller it protects you for the entire time you have your home listed with The Jim Buff Team. For the buyer its a one year service contract, that at the end of the year you are given the option to renew. The contract covers the repair and/or replacement of many major home system components and appliances that typically break down over time.


Imagine moving into a home, maybe in the fall. The previous homeowners haven’t used the heat since March or April, it’s starting to get chilly in the house and you go to turn on the heat, it works but in a day or two it starts to give out. Are you going to want to spend the money to have it looked and repaired? With the American Home Shield Home Warranty you will only have to contact them and they will schedule a repair person to come out and look at and remedy the situation. The cost, $75. Yes, you read that correctly, something that could potentially cost you thousands of dollars, you’re going to pay $75.


Therefore, next time you’re buying or selling. Don’t forget the Home Warranty.
