My daughter is closing on a house tomorrow. The seller has offered to buy a home warranty policy - is allowing her to pick from several different companies. I tried to get the price of the house reduced - no go - I THINK BUT DON'T KNOW - that the warranty companies offer the seller a free (or reduced rate) policy - so it is not really costing them much of anything - with the hope they can get the new homeowner to renew at the end of the term. I doubt she will renew - but why not pick a company that will give her some level of service for a year. The choices are American Home Shield First American Home Buyers Protection corp One Guard Old Republic Home Warranty Allied Home Warranty Any GT help appreciated - I pulled a few reviews - all have good and bad.
