Home Seller Protection

Building Protection Around You ™

Sell your home faster, get a higher price and give buyers confidence!

Canadian home sellers can benefit from similar home protection services that Americans have used successfully for over 50 years. Home Systems and Appliances Breakdown Insurance can make a resale home more attractive to buyers. Pre-Owned car dealers discovered over 60 years ago that sales increased dramatically when vehicles were protected by a warranty - statistics show the same is true for resale homes.

- Gallup has found that most home buyers would prefer to buy a home protected by breakdown insurance
- The National Home Warranty Association claims systems and appliance protected homes sell much faster
- Business Week has stated protected homes sell for more than non-protected homes

At Martin Merry and Reid Limited, a Registered Insurance Broker, we offer what we believe is the best service and protection available to help you sell your home:

Canadian Home Shield SafeClose™ Home Systems Breakdown Insurance* provides protection for 1 year from the high cost of repairs due to unexpected breakdowns to home systems during the listing period, commencing 30 days after firm/closing date. This coverage is transferable to the home buyers at closing.
A home systems breakdown insurance "sign rider" can be displayed on the for sale sign and the same can be added to the MLS® listings, feature sheets and in classified ads to attract more buyers.

Best of all, providing this coverage lets potential buyers know the home you are selling is protected, creating Peace of Mind, confidence and security. It provides you with a competitive edge that no FSBO or reduced commission provider can match.
