It is a myth that home warranties are only purchased when you buy or sell your home. Many sellers will offer home warranties with their homes to extend the assurance of a good deal for buyers. It can help to make the daunting task of preparing to be a home owner a little easier. I have also had buyers buy a home warranty on their own to make them feel more confident with their home purchase.
But what happens after the initial year of coverage? Most will say they just let it go and don't think about it again. Even more folks I have spoken with recently thought they could only be purchased during a real estate transaction. They were under the assumption that realtors were the only source of warranties.
This couldn't be farther from the truth. Home warranties companies can be contacted by any one. Real estate agents will usually be involved in the process of setting them up during a transaction, but the truth is they are something you can buy for your home at any point. In fact you can keep renewing them every year or get one out of the blue.
The only catch is that you have to get your home warranty before you have a problem. Generally problems discovered prior to purchasing the warranty won't be covered. It is important for home owners to call around and find out what type of coverage is offered and at what price. Often the minimal cost of a home warranty can save thousands if something does go wrong.

Hello! My name is Dana McGushin and I have been working at EXIT for about a year and half now. I feel fortunate enough to be a part of such an amazing company that not only provides top notch service but gives back to our community. EXIT Cornerstone Realty has provided, and continues to provide, an ample amount of training that allows its agents to be the best in our field. They say it takes a village and here at EXIT you get the village. Not only will you have my full attention but the support of our broker, other agents, lenders, inspectors, title companies, pest control....the list is long. I will be by your side every step of the way!
A little about me....before entering the exciting world of real estate, I was a special education teacher. There I had to view every child as an individual and develop a plan to suit their individual needs. I have taken many of those skills and apply them to my career today. Every person is different, every deal will be different. I moved to the Culpeper area about 5 years ago and have enjoyed getting to know this charming little town. I do love venturing out and serving clients in the surrounding areas.
Living close to Washington D.C., but not too close can be a good thing
"Dana McGushin was my real estate agent when I purchased a house in Fall 2016 and she was absolutely awesome!!! She made the whole process go very smoothly. She tuned into the details I was looking for in a home and found the perfect houses to show me. She was quick to set up showing appointments and to write up a contract when I found my ideal home.
Dana's communication skills and professionalism in speaking with others involved in the purchasing process is highly commendable. She is quick to respond to questions and to help in gathering needed information for closing. Because of her caring nature and expertise, my experience with buying a new home was pleasant and stress free. I highly recommend using Dana as your real estate agent when selling or purchasing a home!"
