Why Put a Home Warranty on Your Listing?

by Your Key to Memphis Team

If you are selling your home, a home warranty is a great way to minimize the risk of costs and delays during the listing period, giving your home a competitive advantage. Potential buyers can feel confident that they will have a home warranty company to assist with unexpected repairs after the sale. 

Today more home buyers prefer a home that is covered with a protection plan over a home that is not.

On average, a homeowner will utilize their home protection plan at least two times during their first year of ownership. If you would like more information regarding a home warranty, you can contact the Your Key to Memphis Team at melissa@yourkeytomemphis.com

If you are looking for something fun and exiting to do this weekend in Memphis, you don't have to look very hard. It is opening night for the Memphis Redbirds vs Oklahoma City tonight at AutoZone Park. You can go hear Jim Wilson at Alfred's or enjoy Free Swing Dance lessons tonight at the Rumba Room. Saturday, April 14 Ballet Memphis will be presenting Cinderella at the Orpheum Theatre and it is Opening Day for Mud Island River Park and Mississippi River Museum. Don't miss the City Auto Rajun Cajun Crawfish Festival, Sunday, April 15.
