A Brand New Texas Warranty Option!

If you are a builder in the state of TX, we have great news for you!

The Texas state legislature passed a bill allowing new home warranties to be issued for only 6 years, rather than the previous 10. To accommodate your needs, we have created a brand new 6-year Texas new home warranty. If you build in Texas, please contact us to find out more! If you are already a member of our program and are a Texas builder, we have already added the new warranty to your ordering choices.

 

 

New Renewal Process

As you may know if you’ve been a builder with our program for longer than one year, in the past, we have sent renewal forms out via snail mail. Starting this month, March, our renewals, with a brand new look, will be coming to you as a pdf via email. So if you know that you membership is due in April, keep an eye on your inbox, just in case it accidentally gets sent to your “junk” folder. We wouldn’t want you to miss your renewal discount!

Membership Renewal

The new renewal forms can be printed, completed and then returned to us either by snail mail, email or fax. Please give us a call at 866-526-2090 if you have any questions!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

We remember and honor all who have served and all who have died to defend our freedoms. Freedom we often take for granted is never free; it is bought with a price.

Happy Memorial Day

A New Free Resource for our Builders

Have you ever had a potential home-buyer ask you, “My mortgage lender says I must have a 10-year warranty for my FHA loan. Why do I need that? What does the warranty cover?”

If you weren’t expecting this question, you might be at a loss for words. However, offering your buyers a 10-year new home warranty is not just smart business sense for you, but is also designed to give your buyers peace of mind. An additional benefit is that the written warranty offers your buyers realistic expectations about what items are warranted and for how long, and which items are not warranted. The written warranty also describes for the buyer the items which are considered homeowner maintenance.

Table Tent Marketing Tool

 To help your buyers to understand the categories of repairs warranted by the written document, we have developed a colorful resource to display in your offices or model homes. The double-sided table tents, pictured above, provide your buyers with a visual reference of what general items are warranted.

We would be delighted to mail you a table tent, free of charge, for your marketing display. To order one or more, please email us and in the email, along with your name and address, and let us know if you would prefer the style on the left or the style on the right. The center photo shows the reverse side, which is an info-graphic of the categories the warranty covers.*  Don’t forget that we also have customer brochures, presentation folders and sample warranties you may request as well.

*The examples provided on the table tents are for illustration purposes only. Specific and detailed warranty coverage, terms and conditions, and exclusions are stated in the warranty book assigned to a specific address.
