Not buying or selling a home?

Whether you’ve been in your home 60 years or just closed 90 days ago, we have three different plans for properties not involved in a current real estate transaction.

Views Plans

Why do so many home buyers and sellers trust us?

When you join American Home Shield, you get industry-leading coverage and support. Here are just a few reasons more than 2 million members have chosen our home warranties.

Benefit Section

How do we help buyers?

Prevent Buyer's Remorse
Our real estate home warranties can help you deal with complicated, unexpected covered repairs, even if an issue was missed during inspection.
Protect Post-Closing Budget
Cashflow can be tight after a home purchase, so we help manage the cost of covered breakdowns for major parts of up to 23 home systems and appliances.
Increase Buyer Confidence
Whether it’s your first or fifth home, knowing you have reliable coverage gives you the peace of mind you need to enjoy it.

How do we help sellers?

Market More Effectively
Adding an American Home Shield real estate warranty to your listing gives you a competitive edge and helps you stand out.
Get Support for Surprise Repairs
If a covered item breaks while your home is under contract, we connect you with a qualified contractor and help you pay for the repair.
Simplify Closing Concerns
With the Seller Coverage Option, you can streamline negotiations by having a plan that addresses problems before they even arise.

Get Coverage

For the Real World.

Our Livable and Forgivable coverage is included in every real estate plan, which means you’ll get protection for things other home warranties don’t automatically cover.

We cover breakdowns due to:

  • Normal wear and tear — no matter the age of the item
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Rust, corrosion and sediment
  • Undetectable, pre-existing conditions
  • Mismatched systems and improper installations, repairs or modifications

And even things like:

  • Removal of defective equipment
  • Refrigerant recapture, reclaim and disposal
  • Permits and correction of code violations ($250 or more per agreement term when required during a covered repair or replacement)

See the plan contract for coverage details, including service fees, limitations and exclusions. Charges for non-covered items may apply.

Note: The Seller Coverage Option can be a great negotiating tool in real estate transactions when submitting offers or negotiating home inspection issues.*

Talk to your agent to learn more and get a quote.

*Coverage includes undetectable, pre-existing conditions.

Subject to a $2,000 cap during the listing period. Renewable upon review at the discretion of American Home Shield after 6-month period, up to 12 months.
