There are some very good reasons to pay for a home warranty when selling your home. Providing a warranty may help set your home apart from the competition. Buyers will appreciate having a warranty and will feel more comfortable about buying your home without worrying about hidden problems. Providing a warranty can even result in a higher price, offsetting the cost. Certainly it can make it easier for a buyer to make an offer. These assets make the home warranty an excellent marketing tool.
In addition to the marketing advantages. As a seller you may also be covered under the policy for repairs during the listing contract.
If you are buying a home and it doesn’t come with a warranty, you may want to consider paying for one yourself.
If a home warranty is not being included as part of the sale of the home consider negotiating it into the sales price after determining if the prospective home can use it.
