Search All Homes Want to Sell a Home? Get a Home Value Report I’m joined today by Stacey Kraft of Home Warranty of America, our team’s expert on home warranties. She’ll be talking with us about why it’s important for homebuyers to get a home warranty when they purchase a home. A home warranty covers the mechanical systems of your home. To easily remember what’s covered, just think of PEACH: Plumbing, Electrical, Appliances, Cooling, and Heating. Ideally, coverage should begin at closing—things can and do go wrong in the first week or two of owning a house. Your home is usually being used differently in the beginning, so it’s a good idea to have a warranty from the outset. Stacey’s company offers 13 months of coverage, while most only offer 12 months. Things always seem to go wrong on day 366, so they give you an extra month as a cushion. “ Just think of PEACH: Plumbing, Electrical, Appliances, Cooling, and Heating. ” If you’re comparing companies, look for things such as age restrictions. If you have a 30-year-old furnace, for example, you want to be able to have it replaced if it goes bad. I’d like to thank Stacey for giving us some great insight. Feel free to reach out to her at (248) 330-1076. If you have any questions or would like more information, contact me. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Written by Kathy Toth on May 2, 2019.
