What Is a Home Warranty

Most of the time an Arizona home warranty will cover things such as plumbing and electrical, heating and cooling, and some major appliances such as fridge, built in dishwasher, and stove. While most warranties do not, some policies will include coverage for other appliances such as trash compactor and garbage disposal, built-in microwave and more. You will want to check which policies available cover which things and for what price. Most of the time a home warranty will cost a couple of hundred dollars a year for as long as you want to and can renew it. However, sometimes a home warranty will be a one year thing and be included in the cost of your new home. It is always a good idea to research the terms and costs of various different warranty plans before you purchase any of them so you know that you have the best deal possible. You will want to research whether or not you want an AZ home warranty from your realtor, your builder, or from your insurance company and whether or not you can have multiple policies. Sometimes your home owners insurance will have a home warranty rider that will help cover some things as well. Since policies vary widely you will want to see a sample copy or read over the paperwork before you make any commitments. When you do get the paperwork you will want to really spend time reading over it so that you know exactly what you are getting into. Don’t feel pressure to speed read the contract either, most of the time if the person handing it to you is honest then they won’t mind you taking the time to read and understand the paperwork before you sign.]]>
