Offer Home Warranty?

I have been looking to offer a Home Warranty with our inspections. I did read a letter for InterNACHI from one company that would offer 90 and 120 day warranties. I have since heard very bad things about one of the warranty places. Does anyone offer this or similar warranties? If I remember right it was like $200 to sign up and $20 for the 90 day or something like that. I have heard of other inspectors offering this type of thing but it was some time ago. Can anyone direct me to a company that offers this as well as any company I should stay away from.

Thanks
Tom

I do not offer them. Too many headaches. Here in KC, most agents offer them for free to home buyers. Most cover basic services on mechanicals only.

Ignore the last post.

This used car salesman wants you to hook up a gen set and gas bottle to vacant homes.

http://www.mountainassociation.org/ I found found this to be the Best Inspection Warranty by far. Ben is Nick Gromico’s brother, how can you go wrong??:wink:

Well you have my interest! I like the no membership fee as well that the web page said. I will contact you Tue of next week if that works for you. Thank you for the Response I hope we can have a mutual beneficial partnership. From what I have read so fare I like that I see and will again visit your web page.

Thanks. Tom

Linas,
I don’t see anything at the link you showed that has anything to do with home warranties. It sounds like an interesting thing that I might look into later but correct me if I am wrong, there is not home warranty for my client, that I can see. But thank you for your input.

I have this warranty on my own Home & Pool.
I have been fortunate that I receive more benefit each year than I have paid in Premiums…
(probably not the endorsement AHS is looking for…)

Routine for REALTORS(in this market area) to sell / offer 1 year warranties as inclusive…
for an Inspector to Offer a 90 Day Warranty
that may dissuade from the REALTORS 1 Year Offering…

will cost you business…

Your market may vary…

There’s nothing wrong with offering a warranty as long as your customer understands the limitations. It’s just like anything we do in business, maintain customer expectations. I believe most HI’s offer them in an attempt to increase perceived value and thus close more business. There’s nothing wrong with that but I personally don’t offer them because I am not comfortable with the limitations on the ones that are “affordable” for an inspector to offer.

I just make them aware that this is available… I offered a 90 day warranty in the past but never heard anything good or bad from clients so I don’t promote it (can provide if requested though).

You said you’d send me one but you never did…

We’re you just trying to shut me up?
