A home warranty is an annual service contract that covers the cost to repair or replace parts of home appliances and systems that break down over time. With a Home Warranty, you pay a consistent monthly fee and a set Trade Service Call Fee when you request service.
This seems to be a very convenient service. Homeowners won’t have to deal with unexpected home issues. When a covered item breaks, you can request service online or by phone. A qualified local contractor shows up to diagnose and fix the problem for you. Sounds good and easy, right?
Personally, I’ve been selling this to my clients for years. After buying a fix and flip property, I decided to spend a few $$ for insurance with AHS and you won’t believe what happened.
Should you choose American Home Shield as a home warranty provider?
Well, AHS robbed me of nearly $1100 on a home warranty policy. Podcast rant on AHS. It happened to me, it can happen to you or your clients. Listen to my personal story!
Have you gone through a similar situation? I would love to read your stories as well. Hope you can share them in the comments section.
