Make sure you’re getting the most out of every sale by including an American Home Shield® Home Warranty. It can give your clients one less thing to worry about and help you keep the sale on track by protecting your client’s budget against the expense of unexpected covered breakdowns. Fewer inconveniences for them can mean a stronger client relationship for you and a better experience for everyone.

WARRANTIES CAN HELP YOU WIN MORE LISTINGS

Including American Home Shield Home Warranties can help
listings stand out from other homes on the market. Adding a home
warranty as part of your concierge service model can also help you
stand out from other agents. As a closing gift, paying for the Seller
Coverage Option* or the entire warranty adds unique value to the
service you provide.

STRONGER CLIENT RELATIONSHIPS, STRONGER REFERRALS

Strong client relationships are the best way for real estate
professionals to gain referral business. American Home Shield
Home Warranties can be valuable tools in creating happy clients
by helping transactions go smoothly and by offering budget
protection for covered breakdowns of home system components
and appliances after closing.

RISK MANAGEMENT

Retaining a signed acceptance or waiver of home warranty
coverage for each client may help mitigate risk management issues.
If a client elects home warranty coverage and a covered item needs
repair or replacement, buyers will contact American Home Shield
and not you. This may help protect the client relationship and frees
you to move on to the next closing.

BUDGET PROTECTION FOR BUYERS IN LOW INVENTORY MARKETS

In low inventory markets, successful closings become more
important than ever. But they can sometimes drive housing prices
up, thus making it necessary for buyers to put a larger chunk of
their savings into down payments. This leaves little or no cash for
unexpected covered household repairs after move-in. The budget
protection that an American Home Shield Home Warranty provides
can help offset those covered costs.

HELP SELLERS WITH HOME INSPECTIONS

An American Home Shield Home Warranty with the Seller
Coverage Option* helps protect a home while it’s on the market.
This can help control costs during the sale while reducing the
amount your client has to invest in a home that they’re leaving.
In addition, an American Home Shield Home Warranty may help
keep closings on track should a covered breakdown occur. It may
also minimize negotiations in the event that covered items pass
inspection, but may have been noted in the inspection as having
limited life expectancy. Plus, no home inspection is required for
American Home Shield to issue a home warranty.

HELP WITH MULTIPLE OFFERS

Multiple offers can be challenging for sellers, buyers, and real estate
professionals alike. Paying for an American Home Shield Home
Warranty and including the Seller Coverage Option can help a
buyer make their offer stand out. In addition, the home is protected
between agreement acceptance and closing, while the seller gets
the benefits of home warranty coverage at no cost.
