This is a guest post from our partners at Old Republic Home Protection.
Historically, home warranties have a low use rate on residential resale transactions in the Pacific Northwest. Only about 25% of all transactions include a home warranty. In other major markets across the US—including the top locations for out-of-state buyers moving to our area—this percentage is much higher, and home warranties are a standard part of resale transactions.
It’s your opportunity to gain a competitive advantage.
Since its inception, the home warranty industry has provided budget protection to homeowners and risk mitigation to real estate professionals—and it continues to do so today. With benefits like these, it makes sense to offer the warranty to your home sellers during the listing presentation—giving you a competitive advantage—and insist upon the inclusion of a home warranty with the sale to protect your home buyers. You’ll stand out to your prospects and clients when you show how much you care about their home selling or buying experience before, during, and after the sale.
We are excited to help you bring ORHP’s comprehensive home warranty coverage to your clients.
