Seller coverage option

The seller chooses which plan to purchase for the buyer, and then adds on the Seller Coverage Option. For up to six months while the home is on the market, sellers can get coverage for the same home systems and items (excluding rekey service) included in ShieldEssential. At closing, payment is due for both Buyer Coverage (price depends on plan selected) and Seller Coverage.

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


Subject to a $2,000 cap during the listing period. Coverage is only available for unknown, preexisting conditions. Renewable upon review at the discretion of American Home Shield after 6-month period, up to 12 months.
