With a home warranty from American Home Shield, home buyers can focus on making their new house a home - not how they'll handle the stress of unexpected covered breakdowns.
And, when they request service, our nationwide network of 14,000 local service contractors are ready to help.
"Even though our house and its systems are relatively new, we've needed repairs or replacements every year that more than cover the cost of the plan."
- Andrea M., 2017
A home warranty can help a seller keep a sale on track if an unexpected covered breakdown occurs while the home is on the market.
With our seller coverage option, your clients can add coverage to their listing for six months and pay at closing.
We cover components that make up the home systems and appliances you use everyday - no matter their age. And we don't require maintenance records or home inspections before activating your home warranty coverage. It's similar to appliance insurance or system's insurance that you may have for one item, but our home warranties help cover multiple items. Depending on the type of plan you choose, we cover components of home systems, appliances, or both - things like your heating system, water heater, electrical system, dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer, and more.
And if we can't repair a covered item, we'll replace it. As a member, we want you to know that your budget, your time, and, let's be honest, your sanity is covered.
When a covered item breaks, you can request service online or by phone - day and night.Pay your set Trade Service Call Fee when you request service. Log into your account to check the status.
We assign a qualified local contractor from our network to diagnose your covered item and offer a solution. Our network of more than 17,000 qualified contractors in 49 states covers every trade we service.
Based on the contractor's diagnosis, we'll determine whether your problem is covered by your home warranty. If it's covered, the contractor will repair or replace your covered item subject to limitations and exclusions.
When your clients request service, we assign a local contractor from our network of qualified professionals. This means they won't have to get a referral for a contractor or hope they've chosen the right contractor from an online search. And, our contractors cover 49 states.
