What do home protection plans cover?

Since there are many things that fit here, it is a good idea to get a home protection plan. And if you are a first time home buyer, then you should definitely invest in a new home warranty.
Who pays for the home warranty?
The answer to this question really depends on negotiations and benefits of home warranties. It really does vary. Sometimes it's normal for a seller to pay for the coverage because it's a benefit that the seller can throw into the package to keep the buyer from calling the seller after closing if something breaks. Some real estate agents will also give buyers a home warranty as a gift at closing.
What does a home warranty cost?
For the most part, home warranties are fairly inexpensive, usually ranging from $250 to $400, depending on coverage. Home warranty companies will also many times run special sales and either discount policy prices or offer additional coverage for the same price. Usually you prepay for a year in advance and then can determine if you want to renew the home warranty.
How does a home warranty work?
- When a home system or appliance breaks or stops working all you do is call the home warranty company.
- Then, the home warranty company calls a provider to handle the issue.
- The home owner then gets a call from the provider to take care of the specific issue covered in the home warranty.
- The problem is fixed by the provider. Depending on the contract coverage, sometimes appliances are replaced and installed.
What types of coverages are there?
All home warranty plans are different so you will want to be sure to ask plenty of questions when purchasing a home warranty. Ask about upgrades. Ask if the home warranty company will pay for the repairs that make certain systems or appliances comply with new regulations.
