Warranty Programs

You've done everything right; worked with your Sarasota Home Realty agent to find, inspect and purchase a property. Now you are a homeowner, congratulations! Now that you own the home, what happens if the air conditioner, stove, hot water heater or other items break? How do you protect yourself from unexpected costs for repairs of items that break after the sale? Did you know that there are ways we can help to minimize the costs associated with unforeseen repairs?

At the time you purchase the home, your Sarasota Home Realty agent can write a home warranty policy. A home warranty is a serice contract that covers the repair or replacement of many of the most frequently occurring breakdowns of home system components and appliances. Not everything is covered; however, most of the system components and appliances that breakdown frequently are covered.

Many people are not aware of home warranties until they are involved in a real estate transaction. A home warranty allows you to focus on more important things in life than repairs. A home warranty can be a reliable and economic vehicle, covering the burden of many of the most frequently occurring breakdowns of appliances we have come to rely on. Instead of an expensive repair bill; the home owner pays a small service call fee for the repair or replacement of the covered item. Service call fees range from $55 to $100, for most home warranty plans. This is often much less then the cost of repair or replacement of the item, if you did not have the coverage.

Each home warranty plan is different and can include or not cover certain items. We recommend that you speak to your Sarasota Home Realty agent about the plans offered. Additionally, read the plan's coverage carefully, before you sign up.
