Why worry about home appliance failures? First American has got your back!

Won't it be nice to sit back and enjoy the budget protection and peace of mind that a First American home warranty can offer? 

Homeowner?

If you already own a home, then you know how challenging appliance maintenance can be. No matter how well you take care of your home systems and appliances, they will eventually start breaking down and will often be quite expensive to fix.

But if you opt for the services of reliable home warranty companies in NJ like First American, you can save yourself the time it takes to first find a qualified contractor on your own. Instead, First American finds the contractor for you and arranges for the contractor to call you to schedule an appointment that works for you.

Our vast network of contractors is a big reason why First American is among the best home warranty options in NJ. Even if you have less common or older appliances, we can tap into our network to find a technician that can either fix your broken appliance or replace it.

Homebuyer or Seller?

We offer special home warranty plans just for real estate transactions in New Jersey. Ask your real estate agent to help you choose the best coverage for your needs.

Buyer

When you are buying a home, there are countless things that you need to consider. For one thing, it needs to meet your requirements and provide all the amenities that you and your family may want. But no less important is the fact that it’s a substantial financial commitment, which comes with numerous risks that can sometimes be impossible to control.

That’s why having an NJ home warranty can be so helpful. Instead of having to worry about possible appliance breakdowns after purchase, you can be confident knowing that even if an issue were to arise, you can rely on First American as your convenient solution for protecting your budget from those kinds of unexpected expenses.

Seller

When selling a home, you also have budget risks that can arise during the sales process. Not only can failing appliances be a turnoff to prospective buyers, but you will also have to scramble to find an affordable and available contractor on your own.

So, as a seller, having a home warranty plan makes good sense. You will always be just a phone call away from receiving help. Having coverage can also give prospects more confidence in buying from you because they’ll know that the home’s appliances and systems are taken care of and protected.

Good to excellent services within the term of the contract. I recommend First American Home Warranty to people who live (or own properties) in areas where this warranty is available. Even though I live far away from my property, there was ease in contacting First American to have the needed repair done.

Refrigerator repair. This repair was performed by Nana. The service was very timely as the request was made on a weekend and repair sufficiently completed before closing of business on Monday.
