How Much Does a Home Warranty Cost the Seller?

Another perk of getting a home warranty when buying a house is raising the value of your property. If you’re planning on selling the home sometime in the future, a home warranty makes the listing more attractive.

Many sellers bundle home warranties with the sale of their homes as a value-added service. Doing so attracts potential buyers since it mitigates the high costs typically associated with purchasing a home.

Are the Home Warranty Costs Worth It For a Seller?

Finding the right warranty plan when buying a house is a matter of documenting the appliances and systems in your home and the condition of those systems. How likely are your used devices to break after the new owner moves in? How much would it cost to replace those items?

On top of making budgeting easier for the new owner, the seller will no longer be liable for future breakdowns since the warranty should cover everything.
