How a Home Warranty Protects Homes, No Matter Their Age

How a Home Warranty Protects Homes, No Matter Their Age

A common homeowner misconception is that a home warranty only applies to newly constructed homes. While it’s true that a home warranty is a smart choice for owners of new homes, older and preowned homes are prime candidates for home warranty coverage. By helping your clients understand that “pre-loved” homes are eligible for coverage, you can build trust. Here are a few ways a home warranty from 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty (2-10 HBW) protects homes no matter their age and how that helps you.

A home warranty from 2-10 HBW doesn’t require inspections or have age limits

One of the most valuable things you can do to build trust among your clients is educate them. Many homeowners make the mistake of thinking they can’t get home warranty coverage. They may worry that the house, its systems, and its appliances are just too old.

With coverage from 2-10 HBW, you can enroll your clients in coverage no matter how old their home, systems, or appliances are. This can be a game-changing fact for you to share with them, especially for Sellers. You can give Sellers of older homes peace of mind that if a major system or appliance breaks down while the house is on the market, they have a solution. That gives you and your Sellers a few advantages:

  1. Makes it less likely that a breakdown will slow down the sales process.
  2. Shows Buyers that the Sellers are actively caring for the house, which can make it more attractive.
  3. Gives Sellers a bit more leverage, as it’ll be less likely that they need to make concessions to make up for older systems and appliances.

As long as the home’s systems and appliances are in good working order prior to obtaining coverage, inspections and age limits don’t apply.

A 2-10 HBW home warranty protects home systems, appliances, and budgets

Providing a home warranty can give you a competitive advantage among Buyers interested in purchasing a preowned home, too. Most of these Buyers use a big chunk of their money for everything involved in purchasing the home. That means less money for routine breakdowns caused by wear and tear. But coverage from 2-10 HBW can protect their systems, appliances, and budget when they need it most—after closing.

Whether you provide a home warranty as a gift or the Seller includes one, it’s a good way to build trust. Buyers, especially first-time Buyers, will have a ton on their plate as they settle into their homes. Educating them on what a home warranty does and clarifying that age doesn’t matter for coverage can take some of the stress of home ownership off their shoulders. It can also lead to more referrals for you down the line as your clients find value in their home warranty.

It plugs your clients into a network of trustworthy technicians
