BENEFITS OF A HOME WARRANTY

protectionThere are many benefits to having a home warranty. Whether you’re a homeowner who’s lived in your home for 30 years, a new home buyer, or if you’re looking to sell, having the right home warranty is invaluable. A home warranty is a service that covers the repair or replacement of many of the most frequently occurring breakdowns of home system components and appliances. These include air conditioning systems, heating systems, electrical systems, plumbing systems, plumbing stoppages, water heaters, whirlpool bathtubs, garbage disposals, washers and dryers, stoves and ovens, and refrigerators. While the costs of home warranties can vary widely and depend upon factors such as the size and location of your home, you can usually still find a comprehensive plan to fit your budget. Average costs for home warranties in Utah range from roughly $300 – $500 per year. Here are a few reasons to consider a home warranty:

  • Gives prospective buyers peace of mind and will help your home sell faster and for more money
  • Covers major appliances
  • Helps to keep unexpected repair costs at bay
  • Saves you time you might otherwise spend on DIY repairs, or in searching for a reputable contractor
  • Safeguards owners of older homes from having to pay large out-of-pocket repair costs incessantly or unexpectedly
  • Covers multiple contractor visits
