Home Protect® Warranty Available at No Cost Through Freddie Mac's Buyer Incentive


FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (June 7, 2012) -- Home Protect® is a whole-home warranty program that was developed specifically to meet the needs of the foreclosure market.  Since 2009, Cross Country Home Services has been providing peace of mind to Freddie Mac customers by repairing or replacing major household systems and appliances for satisfied homeowners throughout the United States with Home Protect. 
Home Protect - Freddie Mac CreditFreddie Mac recently announced it will offer a $500 home warranty credit to home buyers who purchase a qualified, foreclosed single-family home, townhouse or condominium through their HomeSteps® division. This is good news for buyers who are currently in the market for a new home, because this incentive allows homeowners to get Home Protect warranty coverage at no cost. 
With Home Protect, buyers of foreclosed homes are protected against unexpected breakdowns that can be costly and inconvenient—air conditioning or furnace repairs alone can run into thousands of dollars. Home Protect's base coverage also incorporates items not included with most warranties, e.g. swimming pool, sump pump and unknown pre-existing conditions. This enhanced coverage is particularly important for foreclosed homes.
To make it even easier for home buyers to make their selection, Home Protect is now offering both one-year and two-year terms. Both options provide the same coverage, and provide access to Home Protect's exclusive Appliance Buyline service, saving buyers money on new appliances, as well as access to its Service Provider Network, with over 40,000 licensed and insured Service Professionals at a 15% discount. 
If a buyer is in the process of purchasing an eligible HomeSteps property that was negotiated on or before May 24, 2012, the two-year Home Protect Home Warranty will be honored if closed by August 31, 2012. Buyers who have not yet purchased a property should tell their Agent they want their home to be protected with the Home Protect home warranty program. The Home Protect warranty program is available for any foreclosed home.
