Creating competitive advantages is how builders stand out and pursue more success over their competition. In the spirit of National Homeownership Month, 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty (2-10) is working with home builders to create competitive advantages in both traditional and new ways. Here’s how.

Traditional Support: Industry-Leading New Home Warranty Program

The expectations homeowners have for their new homes continue to rocket higher every day. High quality, clear performance standards, and post-closing support could be what separate successful builders from the rest.

To address these expectations, more builders have trusted 2-10 and our industry-leading New Home Warranty Program more than any other third-party warranty administrator. Currently, 1 in 5 new homes in the US is enrolled in the 2-10 New Home Warranty Program.

When builders enroll their homes in the 2-10 New Home Warranty Program, they’re differentiating themselves by showing potential buyers their dedication to quality, offering clear performance standards, and providing post-closing solutions to unexpected issues.

New Support: 2-10 NewHome Care℠

Managing post-closing expectations is challenging for many home builders. A big reason why is because, according to 2-10’s research, new homes have an average of 10 post-closing items of concern.

To help builders more effectively address these challenges, 2-10 has introduced 2-10 NewHome Care, the newest evolution of 2-10’s post-closing warranty management solution.

2-10 NewHome Care will be the successor to 2-10’s popular Front Line Warranty Service. In addition to the excellent post-closing support that 2-10 Builder Members could access through Front Line Warranty Service, 2-10 NewHome Care will include additional tools to help builders provide exceptional post-closing experiences, such as:

  • Mobile-Friendly Request Intake that allows homeowners to effortlessly submit requestswith easy photo uploads
  • Customizable Workflows that process homeowner requests in ways that work for you
  • Contractor Assignment to designate contractors, whether internal or external
  • Convenient Scheduling where contractors handle the scheduling so you can focus on building
  • End-to-End Communication for assignments, tasks, appointments, confirmations, reminders, completion notifications, and more
  • Robust Reporting spanning trending defects, operational statistics, processing times, and task aging
