home warranty

I have mixed feelings about these. The companies are known to deny claims however I have almost always been able to intervene to make sure they fix the broken item. A call to their regional representative, and a threat to stop buying policies if they don't fix the appliance, gives me some leverage because of the thousands I spend on these every year. Of course there are some home buyers who expect the warranty companies to cover items that are not included in the contract. Can't help there. It is a fact that these companies are more likely to send substandard contractors. It is necessary to lean on the warranty company in some cases. It can take longer to get a satisfactory resolution as compared to the home owner who simply calls his own contractor and pays out of pocket. Consumers often like the fact that they have some warranty on the systems and appliances. I buy these policies for my clients because they are more likely to remember me positively when they save a few hundreds or thousands on repairs. That's one way to get referral business and repeat business. As a Realtor I have been in the habit of buying these policies for my buyer clients.
