We have asked some of our property manager to provide us with their opinion on home warranty companies/service.
Their opinions are expressed here.
The opinions are should not use as an advice on what you should or should not do when it comes to home warranty – You can be the judge of it.
Home warranty companies differ greatly.
Some are better than others, but overall then aren’t good for property manger’s and owners.
We want to service our tenants.
If your AC breaks down and its 90 degrees you want service within a reasonable time frame.
HW’s wont come for days and when they come out the repair isn’t covered.
Happy tenants are long term tenant’s.
My job is to save the owner money.
I recommend preemptive. maintenance, service the HVAC system every 12 months, make the tenants change AC filter, etc.
Plus I have a construction background as should any PM.
I know what things cost to repair.
Our vendors understand that we work for owner and they need to do cost effective repairs, guarantee the work and provide prompt services to maintain our relationship….Do you think their repair people guarantee the work and work for a 60.00 co-pay. I think not!
Home warranty’s are good for homeowners
