Home warranty policies are offered by third party providers and cover items in a house for a specific period of time after the date of the sale (usually 1-2 years). Items that are covered typically include appliances and HVAC systems.There are extended coverage policies for items like pools and spas.
These policies usually run between $350-$420 in the St. Louis, MO metropolitan area. In today’s market many sellers are offering these policies to make their houses more attractive to potential buyers and to separate their properties from other houses for sale in their area.
