First Time Home Buyer Information
A few years after I moved into my first home, the heater broke. It was New Year's Eve and although the house was located in Texas, it was really cold in the house that night. My soon-to-be-husband worked on that heater all night long, while my kids and I were snuggled up in a bed together under mounds of blankets. Six hours later we had heat again. A few months later, just weeks before our June wedding, the unit died and we had to spend a ton of money to get it completely replaced. The best solution to avoid these types of expensive emergencies is to purchase coverage for electrical, HVAC, and plumbing issues. Homeowners should always research a company to see exactly what is covered and whether the company has a good reputation. One such company is HomeServe USA and the Homeserve USA bbb report shows consumers a rating on a scale of A+ - F. These ratings are a pretty good indicator of service, but keep in mind that most people only contact the bbb when something goes wrong. If you're considering a home purchase, do your research and talk to several experienced homeowners during the process.
