What is a residential service contract? A residential service contract, which is also another name for a home warranty contract, is an agreement that covers certain repairs and replacements on house systems. A residential service contract is essential for anyone who owns a home or if you are trying to buy a house.

Before you buy a house or if you already own one, it is important to secure a residential service contract to protect you from costly repairs and the replacements of many home appliances or systems components that may break down over time due to normal wear and tear.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Home Warranty

Home warranties provide home owners valuable coverage and security; however, some home warranty services do not provide coverage for all systems and appliances. It is important for home owners to read and understand what is included in their residential service contracts. Here are 3 tips to get the most out of your residential service contracts or your home warranty:

  • Verify your coverage – If in any case something in your home fails or is broken, check your residential service contract to be sure if these systems or appliances are covered by your service.
  • Contact residential service provider – When an appliance or system in your home fails or is in need of a maintenance, contact your residential service provider so that they can diagnose the problem and perform repair or replacement if needed.
  • Perform routine maintenance – Always remember to schedule a routine maintenance for things like cleaning or changing filters in your system or appliances. Always check your manufacturer’s guidelines to see the maintenance needed and how often they should be performed.

Who Should Buy a Home Warranty Plan?

Residential service contracts are a good idea if you want to take advantage of benefits of a home warranty plan and not have to worry about the costly repairs of systems and appliances when they break. For home sellers, offering a home protection plan is a great marketing tool. Whether a seasoned investor, a real estate agent, or an occasional home seller, a house with a home warranty is more likely to sell first than a home without one. The last thing a home buyer would want is to worry about a break or a malfunction in their new home. It is always a good idea to secure one, especially for new home buyers with no experience maintaining a home.

It is always important to remember not to mistake your home warranty for a homeowners insurance. A homeowners insurance covers your home’s structure and belongings in the event of a fire, storm, flood, etc. A home warranty, on the other hand, will cover repairs and replacements on systems and appliances due to normal wear and tear and not from any damage caused by natural disasters and calamities.
