General Information

There's never a good time to be hit with huge repair or replacement bills. But the fact is that repair and replacement rates go up as appliances and systems age. In order to avoid paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars for expensive repairs yourself, you'll make a great choice with the HMS Home Warranty.

As an HMS contract holder, the warranty provides peace of mind if your covered appliances or systems need repair or replacement. The HMS Home Warranty is also of great value when things in your home are running well. If you decide to remodel or upgrade you have unlimited access to appliance discounts through the Appliance Buyline®. This valuable service can save you up to 30% on name brand major appliances. The HMS Home Warranty can also provide you with ongoing peace of mind after your first year since policies are renewable.* You will receive renewal materials from HMS prior to your warranty's expiration. In order to keep your warranty coverage working for you, please make sure to renew your warranty before it expires. Then, when it's time for your next move, it's good to know that warranted homes sell up to 50% faster than unwarranted homes.**

*Renewal eligibility is subject to underwriting guidelines.
