When it comes to selling a home, offering a home warranty in the contract is an excellent way to entice buyers. It shows good faith and offers an assurance to buyers that the home is covered by a home warranty for the first year of ownership.

With the Seller Coverage Option, the seller’s home is also protected during the listing period against covered breakdowns of its most critical systems — items that are usually the most expensive to repair and replace. This includes home systems like heating, air conditioning, ductwork, plumbing, electrical and water heaters. Regardless of which home warranty package is chosen for buyers, sellers can add the Seller Coverage Option for up to six months (with the option to renew**), potentially saving themselves a bundle while they get their home sold. And buyers have 60 days from the closing to upgrade or change their coverage options. Plus, this package is offered at special AHS Real Estate Edition pricing that is only available for real estate transaction customers. What’s more, no money is due until the home closes.

With the Seller Coverage Option, your clients won’t be caught off guard when unexpected, covered repairs pop up. But that’s just one of the reasons to add an AHS Real Estate Home Warranty to a listing while it’s on the market. It also:

  • Distinguishes the home from the competition to attract potential buyers
  • Adds value to the listing and may help sell the home faster and with fewer  worries
  • Helps mitigate unexpected covered issues from the home inspection to help  keep the sale on track

Ask your AHS Account Executive how you can cover your listings with valuable AHS Home Warranty protection and the Seller Coverage Option. In the meantime, read more about the many advantages of an AHS Home Warranty.
