When it comes to buying a new home, there are plenty of things to consider, like excellent schools, amazing restaurants, and plenty of shopping options nearby. But, what about the quality of your home’s construction?
With Arizona’s widely varying temperatures and rainfall, homes can be subject to the physical dynamics of expansion and contraction, affecting the natural materials used in the home (like beams, joists, and drywall). This can cause cracked walls, broken windows, or settling foundations.
Different Types of New Home Warranties
To protect new construction homebuyers, the state of Arizona requires homebuilders to provide new home construction buyers with implied warranties, offering baseline coverages for limited time periods. These implied warranties, unfortunately, leave lots of room for interpretation which often results in both buyer and builder operating in the grey areas – not a place most home buyers want to be.
The truth is, homes are made by humans, and with natural materials. A builder who defines exactly what is covered in your home with a well-written warranty is a benefit to you. From items as minor as trim work or lighting, to structural issues that could cost tens of thousands of dollars to rectify, making sure your investment is protected should not be overlooked.
At Brown Homes, with new home communities across the state, they eliminate that worry for new home buyers by providing quality construction and a best-in-class home warranty.
Going Above & Beyond
According to an industry expert, Daniel Smith, Risk Management Specialist at 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty, “Brown Homes goes above and beyond what the state of Arizona requires of them, to make sure the homeowner is covered.” Brown Homes provides buyers with the nation’s leading new construction home warranty coverage through 2-10 HBW.
Consequently, they are not only a market leader but have a long history in the industry, demonstrating they protect both buyers and the builder alike. Not every home builder qualifies for such warranty programs. Only elite builders with impeccable standards and a track record of quality are able to participate.
“Brown Homes’ new home construction warranty outlines exactly what is covered in the home,” said Smith, “It is a 1-2-10 policy, where workmanship is covered for one year, systems are covered for two years (HVAC, plumbing, electrical, waste piping), and the structural elements of your home are covered for ten years.”
This warranty, facilitated by 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty, provides new home buyers with maximum protection and peace of mind with every Brown Home sold. Research shows that new homes covered by warranties retain their value, and resell at higher amounts than comparable homes, according to 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty.
New Construction Warranties are Not Created Equal
As you can see, not all warranties are created equal. Be sure to do your homework and compare your builder’s coverage. These safeguards can protect you from avoidable issues. As Smith said, “Brown Homes stands behind their quality so homeowner’s know their investment is protected.”
