Home Warranty Plans for Buyers


When making real estate purchases, buyers are faced with an array of important decisions that can seem overwhelming. And the questions of whether to add a home warranty plan and how to find a cheap home warranty plan are no exception. If you’d like protection for your home, then you’re in the right place.   


What is a home warranty? It’s a year-long, renewable home service plan that helps protect your budget by cutting the cost to repair or replace many of the systems and appliances in your home.  


We’re in the peace-of-mind business at American Home Shield, and we make that and your budget our top priorities. Here’s why our home warranty plans are worth it.  


Confidence and Comfort  

Your confidence and comfort are key. With an American Home Shield® home warranty plan, buyers have the reassurance that many of the home systems and appliances they use every day, like their refrigerator, washing machine, A/C, water heater, and more, are covered should a breakdown occur. If a covered item can’t be repaired, American Home Shield will replace it for you. A home warranty helps you protect your hard-earned real estate investment and focus on more fun things like making memories in your new home.  You can be confident in your hard-earned real estate investment.   


Our home warranty plans for buyers cover things that home insurance doesn’t. Learn more about what is covered with home warranty vs homeowners insurance.  


Budget Protection

Not worrying about sudden expenses is especially important for buyers in low-inventory markets, where inflated housing prices may require larger down payments and leave less money in savings for unexpected repairs.
