Home Warranty in Florida

Florida MapA good home warranty can prevent the homeowner from shelling out thousands of dollars when unanticipated repairs arise. Instead of paying upwards of $6,000 to fix the plumbing, the cost to the homeowner could just be a couple of hundred dollars with a good home warranty policy. Rather than standing the entire expense to replace the dishwasher, a home warranty policy may cover the cost of a new one. Florida homeowners have many options when they are looking into home warranties.

Most home warranty companies offer basic plans to cover the most essential items in the home. The plans typically include plumbing systems, sump pump, water heater, and electrical systems. Home warranties provide for replacement or repair of appliances and home systems when things break or wear out. If a home is equipped with a central vacuum or a pool, there are plans available to protect those items too. When choosing a home warranty policy, it is important that the homeowner read the plan thoroughly to ensure that coverage will be provided for the features of their home. It is also wise to check the limits placed on each appliance or home system to ensure that they will cover the cost of replacement or repair. The homeowner needs to ensure that their most expensive home features are protected as well, which may necessitate an enhanced plan.

Anyone who owns a home that is ten years old or older would benefit from checking into home warranties. Generally, as a home begins to age the maintenance expenses increase and repairs become more frequent. Home warranties can help offset these costs. A person planning to sell their home will increase the chances of a quick sale if the home comes with a warranty in place. And for the buyers, if a home warranty is not already included they can request one to be added. Regardless of the status of a resident, if they own the home they live in, having it covered can alleviate the financial risk that comes with ownership.
