Sparks, NV (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
Real estate marketers and home sellers across the United States can now breathe a sigh of relief as various local real estate associations report a steady rise in home sales with the opening of this year. For instance, the Iowa Association of Realtors reports that home sales in the region have increased in 18 out of the last 19 months ("Iowa homes sales on rebound," Daily Gate City, February 18, 2013). The number of Iowa homes sold or closed in January 2013 is 1,898 — a number that is 14 per cent greater than last year’s figures. In addition, market prices have also been surging: In Iowa, median and average prices for properties have risen by 7.3 and 6.3 per cent, respectively. Other areas in the country, such as Chicago, Austin and the state of Illinois are reporting strong sales for the start of this year.
Experts from Sensible Home Warranty speculate that these increases in home sales may be due to increased buyer confidence, which can be affected by a number of things, such as provisions for home warranties. They strongly advise homeowners to get home warranty plans for their new property as this can help ease the costs of repair and replacements in the long run. This is particularly important for home utility systems, such as electrical and plumbing facilities, and appliances sold with the home.
“As a homeowner, a home warranty will be your best defense against costly repair and replacement fees,” Sensible Home Warranty speakers state. “Your home is most likely one of your biggest investments. Unexpected repair or replacement costs can easily strain your budget. Plus, finding an approved and insured contractor to solve your problem can be stressful and inconvenient. A home warranty cannot prevent systems or appliances from breaking down, but it can help make covered repairs or replacements easier and less costly,” they add.
They advise property sellers and new homeowners to choose their warranty providers and packages carefully to assure prompt service in the future. When choosing warranty companies, they advise homeowners to carefully check the following features: the availability and knowledge of staff, the company’s network of licensed and insured local technicians, and the types of plans and their coverage.
Once homeowners have settled on a particular company, they should then check out the various packages offered by the group. Consultants from Sensible Home Warranty advise homeowners to consider their needs and budget to determine which warranty package suits them best.
