FLEXIBLE PLANS, FLEXIBLE PRICING.
The cost of your American Home Shield home warranty depends on a few factors:

  • The size of your home
  • The Trade Service Call fee selected
  • Any additional coverage added to your plan

WHAT'S A TRADE SERVICE CALL FEE?
As with most home service plans, when you have a service request, you'll pay a Trade Service Call Fee for each different kind of trade professional (plumber, electrician, etc.) that comes to your home to provide service. But our fees are flexible. As a member of American Home Shield, you set the amount you pay (either $75, $100 or $125, plus sales tax where applicable) which can help adjust the monthly cost — a higher TSCF means a lower monthly cost.
NEED MORE COVERAGE? NO PROBLEM.
Have a pool? Want to protect your electronics? Every plan can be tailored to fit your needs with our add-on coverages. If you opt for add-ons, extended coverage can be an additional $50 to $258.

FAQs

The price of a home warranty depends on a few factors, such as, the level of coverage and add-ons you need for your home, the size of your home, and the trade service fee you select. At American Home Shield, our plans begin as low as $39.99 per month.

We have 3 plans with multiple add-ons so you can customize your plan depending on your needs and your family's. For example, having an add-on that covers the electronics in your house might be especially relevant if you're currently working from home, but you might not need protection for pools and spas if you don't have one. That way you can create your own plan so it fits your unique needs and budget.
The standard home warranty contract for most home warranty companies is one year.
You can buy a home warranty at any point during your home ownership. However, we do recommend buying one prior to closing on your new home. Not only does this protect your budget from a large bill when an appliance breaks down, it can often lead to a lower rate on your home warranty plan.

On average, home warranties cost from $500 to $700 per year, in monthly payments of between $40 and $60 per month. Industry-standard service fees range from $75 to $125. Sources: 1, 2.

You can start requesting service 30 days after you buy your warranty. If you purchased or were given a home warranty during a real estate transaction, your coverage starts the day of closing.
