As today’s buyers continue to become more educated regarding the ins and outs associated with purchasing a home, real estate professionals across the board are seeing an increase in the amount of buyers who want a home warranty included in their transaction. “There’s been some uncertainty in our industry over the last several years,” says Brennan Buckley, senior vice president and general manager of Iowa Realty in West Des Moines, Iowa, “so anything that can provide stability and certainty is a real value for buyers and sellers.
“Educated buyers want warranties, and they should,” says Buckley, who notes that many of the company’s transactions come with a home warranty. And thanks to the firm’s long-standing relationship with HSA Home Warranty, Buckley can rest assured that his buyer and seller clients are covered in the event that something should happen to the property in the midst of a transaction, or once all is says and done and everything’s been completed.
Having seen firsthand the value HSA Home Warranty adds to the mix when it comes to instilling peace of mind among today’s buyers and sellers, Buckley points to the company’s product line as one of the things that truly stands out. “Not only does HSA offer great products, but there’s also clarity of coverage,” says Buckley. With a wealth of plans to choose from that cover a wide range of mechanical systems and appliances, such as the water heater, air conditioning and heating systems, dishwasher and oven/range, HSA goes above and beyond to ensure Buckley’s agents—and their buyers and sellers—understand all the nuances associated with a particular warranty plan.
Buckley also touts the company’s vendor partners as a key benefit. “When a covered item breaks down and needs to be addressed, HSA Home Warranty has a network of great partners out in the field who do a really good job, which is important for agents and customers when something needs to be fixed or replaced.”
Last but not least, and perhaps most important of all, Buckley points to the staff employed by HSA Home Warranty as an integral asset. “The individuals who work for HSA Home Warranty are really good at not only servicing the warranty, but making the entire process easy to understand,” says Buckley. “These things go a long way toward helping HSA Home Warranty stand out in the marketplace.”
As we continue to make our way through a changing market, Buckley goes on to say that HSA has added a level of certainty to the selling side of the equation as well. “Working with HSA has given our sellers the added edge of being able to offer a warranty on a home, helping to get the property sold by providing certainties for buyers who are looking for things like this in today’s market.
“We’ve had a wonderful experience working with HSA Home Warranty, specifically Rosanne Paul—our primary contact,” concludes Buckley.
