Buyers and sellers alike find an ally in American Home Shield® (AHS®)
Christina Bailey of The Christina Bailey Group at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Camp Hill, Pa., has been in real estate for exactly a decade. Since the start of her career, she’s been upping her client offerings through a longstanding relationship with home warranty provider American Home Shield® (AHS®).
“Warranties have become increasingly important in negotiating deals in a tight market,” says Bailey, who works with a team of eight agents.
In recent years, AHS has become more than just a warranty provider, acting as a valued resource for Bailey’s clients and team. “Buyers are buying the warranty to protect their investment,” says Bailey, who explains that sellers are more willing to accept an offer when it’s paired with the comfort that comes with the home warranty.
And, Bailey points out, AHS also supports her sellers. “The warranty is offered on our listings for marketing,” says Bailey. “Who wouldn’t want to buy a house with a home warranty offered?” Bailey explains that her sellers often utilize AHS during the inspection process for covered repairs that may arise, noting that it’s a little extra something to help the entire home-purchasing process, regardless of which side you stand on.
“You never know what can happen in the months to come. It eases [my client’s] mind to know that they just need to make a phone call to AHS should something go awry. The customer service side of AHS is very responsive and eager to help,” says Bailey.
“I always recommend AHS to colleagues, friends and family,” says Bailey. “It’s an added protection on your home to cover the unforeseen. Sometimes you won’t need it, but the moment you don’t have it, you’ll wish you did. Life is complicated enough. I like to make homeownership repairs easy with AHS.”
