Distinguishing Feature

The market for new home construction sales is complicated and competitive. As a Real Estate Professional, that’s no surprise to you. Builders compete against each other as well as the resale and foreclosure markets for sales. A 10 year written warranty is a distinguishing feature that makes your new home listings even more attractive to potential homebuyers.

 

Reduced Liability

HOME’s 10 year warranty plans assure the buyer that either the builder or the warranty company will rectify warranted defects. That’s a direct advantage to the Real Estate Professional looking to manage professional liability in real estate transactions.

 

FHA/VA Approval

Not only does the home buyer need to qualify under today’s tougher financial requirements, but the home builder may also need to demonstrate stability and provide security. Regardless of the type of financing, conventional, FHA or VA loan, if the home carries a 10 year warranty from HOME of Texas, you can rest assured that it was constructed by a builder who met HOME’s membership criteria.

 

Qualified Members

Only builders that meet or exceed HOME’s membership criteria are approved. HOME looks for applicants that have demonstrated technical competence, financial stability, and professional building ethics.

 

Buyer’s Peace of Mind

Major structural defects exceed $30,000 on average. That’s a hefty price tag for your buyers to handle if there is a structural issue in the house but the builder is unable or unwilling to correct it. With a 10 year insured warranty from HOME, your buyers have recourse to get warranted defects repaired according to written warranty standards.

Transferable

If your buyer needs to resell their home within the 10 year warranty term, the balance of the warranty is transferable to the next owner, which is an excellent marketing advantage.

“Great marketing tools for builders to pass down to new homeowners – from the newly revamped color warranty books, to the easy-to-use and informative website. Also, the spring and fall newsletters are always full of current events and useful tips. HOME puts a lot of information at your fingertips.”
