New Home Builder Warranties Warranties for New Homes and Remodeler Warranties

The HomeSmart Real Estate Professional’s Edge in Extended Home Warranties

What Does Your Buyer Get?

  • ECONOMICAL & FLEXIBLE PLANS: Your Buyer receives a program that covers more major appliances as “Standard” than most other companies. They won’t pay a penny extra to include their primary washer, dryer, refrigerator, or HVAC system.
  • STRUCTURAL COVERAGE: Your Buyer can opt to select coverage to include the major structural (load-bearing) components of their home.
  • CONTROL OVER SERVICE: Your Buyer controls the decision on choosing a repair provider. They won’t have to settle for a repair provider chosen by the warranty company but can select someone they trust to do the job.
  • ASSURANCE: Your Buyer gets peace of mind, knowing that if they disagree with our decision on a claim, our warranties include an independent arbitration provision that follows Federal regulations. So, if the homeowner thinks we are being unreasonable, Key Estates gives THEM the ability to get another opinion.
  • TRUST & EXPERIENCE: Your Buyer receives a warranty insured by an independent insurance company. Key Estates’ insurer has been rated “A- (Excellent)” by A.M. Best continuously since 2001.
