Aging AC or Appliances?

Monday, July 4th, 2016

If you have a home that has older kitchen appliances or an older AC system, a home warranty could be a good option to offer a prospective buyer. A home warranty is like an insurance policy on these systems in case there is a future need for a repair. They are typically a 1 year policy that costs between $400-$600 and is paid at closing.  The amount depends on additional options you choose. For example, pool equipment is another great item for coverage in Florida. The only amount the buyer would need to pay at time of service is the trade fee which can range from $60-$100.

Ask your local real estate agent about the type home warranties and the associated costs that are offered in your area.
