A home warranty policy protects you from the expense of major repair or replacement caused by unexpected mechanical failure of a major system or appliance. They are fairly inexpensive, typically ranging from $250 to $400, depending on coverage. Home warranty companies sometimes run special sales and either discount policy prices or offer additional coverage for the same price. The policies are prepaid in escrow for a year in advance. You can acquire a policy which protects your for one full year after closing from major repair or replacement bills.
Most policies have a $50 to $100 deductible, and you generally contact the warranty company for service technician. These policies are offered by several different companies in our marketplace.
