Home Warranty

Most people have heard of a Home Warranty as it pertains to buying a new or custom home from a home builder. The 2-10 Warranty is a popular warranty that a lot of Louisiana builders use. The first two years everything is covered, including appliances and systems – plumbing, electricity, gas, etc. After that for 10 years, all structural aspects of the home are covered – exterior covering (siding, stucco, brick), framing, windows, doors, etc. It’s a pretty good deal. Some builders will come in the first year and fix major “punchlist-type” issues just to keep a good reputation for standing by their work.

Many people did not know that it is possible to get a warranty for a resale home. There are several companies out there that offer warranties for appliances and systems such as air conditioners, dishwashers, hot water heaters, etc. These warranties can be extremely helpful for homes that are about to reach a certain age. It is almost a guarantee that not just one thing is going to start to go bad at a time. All appliances and systems installed in a home were installed at the same time, so it is inevitable that they will age and “fall apart” at about the same time. This can leave a homeowner in a financial jam that might have been avoided if they were proactive and planned in advance during the purchase of their home to get a warranty.

As a buyer, you can research the purchase of a warranty yourself. My #1 Rule of Thumb is to BE SURE to read the fine print AND the reviews of the company. Some warranty companies are very reputable and take care of their customers, and some sell warranties that cover nothing. With the Internet today, you can definitely find out this information by doing searches that include the word scam or risk with the name of the company that you are researching. Many people take to the Internet to vent their frustrations and concerns.

Also, ask your lender or even your title company if they work with any reputable warranty companies that they can recommend for the purchase of your home.

AH! Where do I begin?! We had a 6 month journey with Chris. We were selling & buying. Sometimes the process isn’t... always rainbows and butterflies. But, Chris is one of the most positive individuals I have ever met. Chris cares, not only about his job, but his clients at a personal level & I believe that whole heartily. Sometimes, I can be well, difficult. 🤷🏼‍♀️ He always LISTENED to every one of my husbands and I concerns. He made sure to communicate with the buying agent and us very effectively and efficiently. In the end I wouldn’t have it any other way. If you are looking for MORE than just an agent to get you & your family through your selling or buying process, then Christopher Miguez is your man! Merry Christmas & Happy Selling / Buying ♥️🎄read more

Kelly helped making the process of buying my first home smooth and fun! As a close friend of Kelly’s, I had seen her... success in real estate from an outsider’s perspective, and now I understand why from first hand experience! The knowledge and experience offered by Kelly and her team helped me feel comfortable in a situation that was totally new to me. All of the recommendations that she gave me have turned out great - from lenders to offer amounts to storage solutions in the home. I recommend Kelly and her team 100% to anyone buying or selling a home. Thank you Kelly!!!read more

Kelly's marketing skills are untouchable. Her use of social media and personal contacts with other realtors is what... makes her outstanding. She even keeps a list of potential buyers so that when a house becomes available she can notify them. She kept us informed throughout the process and answered all questions. Two offers were received one day after the house was on the market. THANKS Kelly!read more
