Homeowner Saving Trips for Seniors
Known to many is the brilliant Home Warranty Program, American Home Shield, which could benefit millions of households and help them never pay for covered major system or appliance breakdowns again. If you likely have homeowners insurance, a home warranty plan is similar to a homeowners insurance plan, but covers many things that an insurance plan wouldn't like when your washing machine fails, your dryer quits, your dishwasher dies, or your refrigerator keels over.
Often, homeowners are offered a one-year home warranty plan when they purchase a home. A home warranty is a huge plus for the home buyer because it takes away the stress of having to pay for repairs during the first year while they re settling into a new home. No homeowner wants to deal with home system failures, such as a broken washing machine or when a central heating system stops working. These unexpected appliance breakdowns can cost $1,000 dollars to fix.
However, home warranties are not just for new buyers. The reality is, existing homeowners have the option to get a home warranty plan anytime after they purchased their home. It doesn't matter if you've lived in your home for 30 years or more, you can still get a home warranty plan that will cover the cost of many unexpected home repairs.
HOW DO YOU GET A QUOTE?
Step 1: Check if your ZIP code qualifies for a Home Warranty Plan (not all zip codes will qualify)
Step 2: You will be able to compare available plans once you enter your ZIP code and home information.
I thought this would be a good article for seniors as I've been at senior homes many times especially when
things stop working, so review and if it is somewhat appealing compare it to what you have now.
