Selling a House in Harrisburg PA: What's a Home Warranty?

   When considering selling a house, a home warranty is something that many buyers feel is a plus. It is a service contract, normally for one year, which helps protect home owners against the cost of unexpected covered repairs or replacement on their major systems and appliances that break down due to normal wear and tear. Home Warranty Coverage is for systems and appliances in good working order at the start of the contract. If you are thinking of selling a house, include this in your considerations.


Check your home warranty policy to see which of the following items are covered. Also find out if the home warranty policy covers the full replacement cost of an item.


•·         Plumbing

•·         Electrical systems                                                        

•·         Furnace

•·         Water heater

•·         Heating ducts                                                                  

•·         Water pump

•·         Dishwasher

•·         Garbage disposal

•·         Stove/cooktop/ovens

•·         Microwave

•·         Refrigerator

•·         Washer/dryer

•·         Swimming pool (may be optional)

Good morning Ken & Leslye,

This is some of the best kept secret information for consumers, that shouldn't be...so many are unaware how a home warranty can benefit them.

Great blog, thanks for sharing!

Ken & Leslye-Great advice for the home seller! Ohh by the way The Bruins demolished Vancouver at TD Garden again last night, forcing a winner-take-all Game 7, and now it's one game for the Stanley Cup; one game to define a season. The best part of the game was in the first period when Luongo let 3 goals by him, and he was pulled from his net. GO BRUINS!

Lisa, thanks you for the support. Sometimes it's the little things that get bypassed.

Good Morning Ken & Leslye-You must admit- it feels great to wake up knowing that you cheered for the Bruins. It has been a great series. I hate to remind you that the best team in the National league is Philadelphia with a record of 43 wins and 26 losses and the beloved Red Sox are the best team in the American league with a record of 40 wins and 27 losses.  I bet our friendship is just starting to grow. GO RED SOX!
