For many Americans, buying a home is one of the biggest decisions—and purchases—of their lives. Even after the dotted lines are signed, there may still be added costs should a problem arise in the home shortly after closing. How can sellers reassure apprehensive buyers? They can provide them with a safety net: a home warranty.
Fonville Morisey Realty, a Long and Foster Company and 20 year market leader in the Research Triangle, a region in the North Carolina market, is well adept with working on transactions with home warranties attached. With 11 sales offices strategically located throughout their market and more than 600 sales associates, Fonville Morisey has found success in partnering with HSA Home Warranty to offer an added bonus that benefits both buyers and sellers.
“HSA has proven to be a great partner for us,” says Mary Kay Pendergraph, general manager at Fonville Morisey. “The warranty coverage is superior, the pricing is competitive and we have found them to be very good about paying claims.”
The HSA home warranty plan is a comprehensive plan that covers major systems like heating and air conditioning, as well as many other appliances that are used on a daily basis, like dishwashers and stoves. The company’s coverage is offered nationwide and repairs or replaces covered mechanical systems and appliances that fail due to normal wear and tear during the coverage period. With a home warranty in place, Fonville Morisey’s clients are protected from the financial burden that comes with unexpected failures in the home, avoiding post sale disputes about who should pay for repairs. Most problems can be handled with just one easy call to HSA.
According to Pendergraph, offering an HSA home warranty provides agents and clients with peace of mind.
“Having a warranty on the home reduces unexpected repair costs after closing for our buyers. When a seller places a warranty on the home at the time of listing, it can also be a powerful marketing tool,” she says. “Both of these are great benefits to our clients and to our associates.”
