home_warranty_sWhat is a Home Warranty

Buying or selling your Scottsdale or Phoenix home can be stressful especially if one of your home’s system’s or appliances breaks down unexpectedly.

A home warranty is a service contract that covers repairs and the replacement of appliances and other systems in your Scottsdale or Phoenix home. It differs from your general homeowner’s policy which covers your home and its contents from hazards such as theft, loss and destruction.

Some of the appliances that are typically covered by most home warranties include: Heating Units, Water Heaters, Microwave Ovens, Ovens, Cooking Ranges, Dishwasher, Garbage Disposal, Plumbing and Electrical Wiring.

Usually only built-in appliances are routinely covered but by paying a little extra you can add AC Units, Washer and Dryer, Pool and Spa and Refrigerators.

Depending on the level of coverage that you purchase, annual premiums can be between 250$ and 600$ as well as a fee per incident. This fee covers the service contractor to come to your home and diagnose the problem.

A home warranty does not cover such things as permit fees, hauling fees nor cosmetic structures that are a part of an appliance like a rotisserie, baking attachments, refrigerator shelves, water filtering devices etc.

Considering the rising costs of appliance repairs and replacement a home warranty is a must. It will free you of the financial burden of expensive repairs and replacement parts. If you are purchasing a Scottsdale or Phoenix home, be sure negotiate with the seller to pay for a home warranty as a part of the contract for the first year. It will be the best house warming gift you ever get!
