7 tips for a home sale in a soft market
Everyone likes a security blanket. Home warranties give buyers an assurance that if something goes wrong with any of the major appliances, plumbing or electrical systems in the house, they won't have to shell out a lot to get them fixed.
As the seller, you'll also reap some of the benefits, as many plans provide additional coverage for when your house is on the market. This can be particularly beneficial when you go through the inspection process after you've accepted an offer.
Plans generally cost between $300 and $450, with extra charges for some appliances (such as your washer or dryer) and items like a pool or hot tub.
