How a Home Warranty Saves Your Clients Money

There are many reasons why American Home Shield® home warranties are good ideas for your real estate clients. A home warranty plan can help protect your clients’ real estate investments by providing coverage for many home system and appliance component breakdowns that happen due to normal wear and tear. With a home warranty in effect, your clients have a resource for qualified repair help when covered malfunctions occur. Perhaps most importantly, American Home Shield home warranties offer important budget protection to help your clients save money.



With an American Home Shield home warranty, instead of paying the full retail cost to repair or replace a covered item, your clients pay a pre-set Trade Service Call fee for each trade profession when they request service. This can represent significant savings for some household breakdowns that can be expensive. For example, here are some cost ranges for repairing or replacing some typical household items*:


Air Conditioning Unit $150-$3,800
Heating and Ductwork:  $105-$3,625
Refrigerator: $200-$1,500
Water Heater:  $240-$1,200


American Home Shield Real Estate Edition home warranties have special pricing, which can also help your clients save money on home warranty coverage. This special pricing is available to real estate clients up to 90 days after closing. Your clients can customize their payment options to suit their budgets by paying monthly for no additional finance fee, or annually. They can even request a specific day to start their billing cycle each month by calling 888.653.1697. 


Your clients can enjoy additional savings opportunities with American Home Shield’s Value Added Programs for members. These programs include discounts on air filters for air conditioners and furnaces as well as discounts on name-brand appliances. There’s also a refer-a-friend reward program.


Remember the old saying that “time is money?” A home warranty can help save your clients money by saving them time and hassles when a covered item breaks down. Instead of spending hours searching for qualified repair help, American Home Shield members simply request service by phone or online 24/7. For more information about how your clients can save money (and time), contact your American Home Shield Account manager or visit today.
