Home protection plans, also known as home warranty plans, usually cover repairing or replacing a home’s working parts (mechanical and nonstructural components) during the first year of home ownership. Limited plumbing, electrical, and heating systems coverage generally come with the policy. Built-in kitchen appliances and garage door openers are typically included in the coverage. Roof, pool, spa equipment, and central air conditioning coverage are also available for an additional charge. A service fee of approximately $75.00 is charged to the new buyer when the company’s repair person makes a service call.
Home protection plans are a huge asset, as they enable the buyer to keep their first year’s costs to a minimum. Often, Harb & Co. can negotiate that the seller pays for this insurance.
