Statistics show that adding a home warranty plan to your listings can help sell homes faster and for more money. Additionally, having a home warranty in place brings peace of mind to all involved: your seller, your buyer, and you, the real estate agent. Here’s how a home warranty helps close deals:
PEACE OF MIND
No matter what the current climate of the real estate market offers, agents need all the help they can get to sell a home. A home warranty offers your clients peace of mind while making one of the most important investment decisions of their life.
HOW A HOME WARRANTY HELPS CLOSE DEALS
Statistics show that homes covered with a home warranty have the following benefits:
- A home with a home warranty sells for about 2.2% higher than a home without a home warranty
- A home warranty can make the odds of selling your home 29% greater
- A home covered by a home warranty will sell about 15% faster than one without
- If unexpected repairs arise during the listing, a home warranty keeps you from having to deal with the unhappy phone calls
A HOME WARRANTY BENEFITS YOUR SELLER
A home warranty plan can add value to a Seller’s home by protecting it against unexpected (and costly) appliance and system repairs during the listing period.
A HOME WARRANTY BENEFITS YOUR BUYER
Home buyers can feel confident that the home they’re buying will be protected against many budget busting, out-of-pocket, repairs during the first year in their new home, at a time when finances may be tight.
A HOME WARRANTY CAN HELP YOU GET LISTINGS
Offering a home warranty plan as part of your marketing package for your sellers could be the deciding difference between you and someone else. The real estate industry is competitive, and it’s critical to leverage all the tools you have available to maintain your edge. Having a home warranty in place during the listing phase helps everyone–your sellers, your buyers and you.
