Happy St. Patrick’s Day from all of us here at Landmark Home Warranty! Hopefully you’re wearing green so you don’t get pinched. Green is a major part of St. Patrick’s Day. You’ll see green on outfits, in food and drinks, on decorations and if you get a Landmark home warranty … you’ll probably be seeing a lot more green in your wallet, too! The best part? With a home warranty you’ll be seeing more green in your wallet every day of the year – not just on March 17. Let us tell you how!
Don’t get Pinched by Home Repairs
Buying and owning a home is expensive. Unless you outright purchase the home, you’ll have to pay mortgage payments, home insurance, utilities, not to mention the money you spend on appliances and furnishings.
Of course, some of these expenses come when you’re first purchasing a home. According to the National Association of Home Builders, new homeowners spend $2,786 on average on new appliances and $5,288 on furniture when moving into their homes. Homeowners who aren’t moving spend only $1,065 on appliances and $942 on furnishing, most likely because they’re settled.
One thing that old and new homeowners alike spend a lot of money on are repairs and property alterations. New homeowners spend around $4,725 on their new homes, and homeowners who have lived in their homes for years still spend about $2,413 on average on their repairs. Homeowners can expect to spend around 1-4% of their home’s value on upkeep and repairs every year.
Those repairs can really add up – you can make sure you’re not getting pinched by expensive home repairs by getting a home warranty!
Home warranties drastically reduce repair costs! A home warranty covers the electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling systems of your home, as well as the major appliances.

With home warranty protection on your home, repairs and replacements on your systems and appliances that break down from normal wear and tear will be significantly less than retail price.
How? It’s because...
A Home Warranty Saves Your Green
When a covered system or appliance in your home fails from normal wear and tear, all you have to do is call Landmark and open a service claim. A Landmark representative will have a licensed and bonded contractor come out to your covered property. You’ll pay them a service call fee (usually between $50 and $100 to diagnose your failed system or appliance depending on the home warranty company).
Once they have made sure the failure is covered in the home warranty contract, they will repair or replace the system or appliance, usually for nothing more! Imagine saving thousands of dollars on an HVAC system by paying less than a hundred dollars to repair or replace it! You will be seeing more and more green in your wallet with a home warranty.
Think of what you can do with all of that extra money …
More Green for Corned Beef and Cabbage
Of course, this St. Patricks’ Day you may use your extra green for a hearty Irish meal of corned beef and cabbage … or maybe you can spend it on a new car, vacation or sprucing up your home with new décor! It’s all up to you how you spend that green you’re seeing in your wallet.
