Avoid post-sale issues by purchasing a home warranty

Get a home warranty when selling

Imagine this scenario: you sell your home, but one day after closing, the water heater in it breaks. Would you really want to deal with an unhappy buyer?

There is one way to avoid post-sale issues surrounding mechanical systems or appliances – sell your home with an HSASM home warranty. If an unexpected failure occurs in the home after the closing, the buyer simply reports a claim and a pre-screened service technician will take care of the problem.

Unlike many other home warranty programs, the HSASM home warranty goes beyond repairs to include replacement coverage. If a covered mechanical system or appliance cannot be repaired, it will be replaced.

Not only can an HSASM home warranty save you from the hassle of dealing with an unhappy buyer, it's a great selling point as you negotiate your home sale. Research shows that eight out of 10 buyers prefer to buy a warranted home.
