Wayne Turner, Owner, and Broker of Turner Real Estate with 21 years of experience is back on the Lake 94.7. Wayne calls into the show to discuss and gives information on the housing market along with tips and tricks the community may be interested in.
What is today's topic?
Home Warranties. Wayne is informing people in the area including Mandeville, Madisonville, Covington, Slidell, Hammond, or any of the surrounding areas that no matter the age of the home, you can get a home warranty when buying a house. He continues on to say that what is even better, is many times you can get the seller to pay for a home warranty for you.
How much do home warranties cost?
Wayne estimates between $500-$600 and it covers the house and all of its major components for one year. What is even better is the policy is renewable every year, no inspection process needed. And it's pre-written in a home buying contract that either the buyer or the seller can pay for the policy.
When purchasing a home, this allows buyers to have less stress. Wayne utilizes the example that if a first time home buyer buys a home, and the water heater bursts or goes out, all they would have to do is call a 1-800 number and they would be able to get a service tech out almost immediately while saving them money.
