What is a home warranty and why do I need one?

A First American Home Warranty is a residential service contract that provides repair and replacement coverage for many of the home’s most essential systems and appliances. With a home warranty, sellers, buyers and agents can all be protected against costly breakdowns before, during, and after the sale of the home.

Additionally, home buyers can move in with confidence knowing that their budget and new home is protected against unexpected mechanical failures. They’ll also get the convenience of having live service representatives available to them 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Home sellers too can sell with confidence. Having a First American home warranty as a special feature on the home will give it a competitive edge over other homes on the market. Buyers will have more confidence in the home and there is usually less negotiating in getting closer to the asking price.
