Home Warranty

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Verani Realty is a proud partner of American Home Shield (AHS), America’s #1 Home Warranty Company. A home warranty is an annual renewable service contract that provides protection and peace of mind, offering a safeguard for when certain essential household systems and appliances break.

How Home Warranty Coverage Can Help

  • Add value and budget protection for buyers
  • Provide peace-of-mind, particularly if inspections or contingencies were waived
  • Give buyers a plan if covered items fail after closing
  • Help manage the costs associated with covered home repairs
  • Offer an increased level of risk management for agents
  • Reduce stress for buyers and for agents

How AHS Seller Coverage Works

When it comes to selling a home, offering a home warranty in the contract is an excellent way to entice buyers. It can also help mitigate unexpected covered issues from the home inspection.

  • Seller adds on the Seller Coverage Option. This option will help protect the home seller with the same covered items as the ShieldEssentialSM package.
  • Sellers enjoy coverage for up to 6 months. Payment is not due until closing.
  • The warranty transfers to the buyer and becomes effective at closing.
  • Differentiate your Marketing Plan for the Seller from the others.

Benefits of AHS Buyer Coverage

  • Peace of mind for buyers, especially if inspections or contingencies were waived or the condition of systems or appliances is questionable
  • A plan and a repair resource if items fail after closing
  • Help for buyers with managing home repair costs and their household budgets
  • No age limit on covered items
  • A workmanship guarantee for completed repairs within 30 days of service
