Benefits of a Home Warranty

What is a home warranty?

A home warranty is a service contract that covers the repair or replacement of home systems and appliances.

Why do you need a home warranty?

Your home is most likely one of your biggest investments. Unexpected repair or replacement costs can easily strain your budget. Plus, finding a qualified professional to solve your problem can be stressful and inconvenient. A home warranty cannot prevent systems or appliances from breaking down, but it can help make covered repairs or replacement quicker and less costly.

Stewart and American Home Shield (AHS) have partnered to offer you comprehensive home warranty protection.

Your home is probably your most valuable asset, which is why you protect it with a home warranty.

Affordable coverage that could save you hundreds of dollars

Homeowners spend an average of $900 each year to repair home systems and appliances1. The cost for just one appliance or systems repair can range from $65 to $20001, and replacement costs average $1,319. 2

  • With Stewart Home Warranty, you reduce the risk of these high costs.
  • Whether you're selling or buying, you benefit from the financial protection of a Stewart Home Warranty
