Buyer Benefits

Buying a new home is fun, exciting and a huge investment. That’s why you protect it with homeowner’s insurance. But what about the items not covered by insurance: a water heater failure. . . a dishwasher breakdown. . . and electrical problem? An AHS Home Warranty is sensible protection and removes the worry of breakdowns with systems and appliances when you don’t know their history. The last thing you need is for an added expense after you settle on your new home. When a covered item breaks down due to normal wear and tear, we will send a contractor to your home to solve the problem. It’s that simple.

There is a 68% chance of a home system/appliance failure in a given year.
The average replacement cost of a home system/appliance is $1,319.
The average repair cost of a home system/appliance is $900.
