Choosing a Home Warranty for Your Rental Property
There are plenty of expenses when it comes to owning a rental property. New application fees, landscapers, and even the downtime costs associated with utilities when no one is residing at the property. There are many factors to consider when renting your property but the thing you may not have thought about can save you a lot of money and peace of mind. A home warranty.
Large ticket items, like your A/C unit, appliances, or plumbing issues, are not typically covered under your homeowner’s insurance unless in cases of natural disasters. When you have a rental property it is important to ensure maintenance items are covered. This is where a home warranty comes into play.
Saving you time and money, a home warranty company will take care of those maintenance nuisances that seem to happen when you’re least prepared for it. The service level plan you opt into will determine the amount of out-of-pocket expenses you can expect for a maintenance request.
