Is one that many homeowners face. After all, there may be issues in the home that require expensive repairs, and a home warranty can help to cover those costs.

It isn’t required. It is up to you to decide if you want it. The market is turning into a “buyers market” in most of the country… so by offering a warranty it improves the marketability of your house…

Tell them a home warranty is one of the marketing tools you’d like them to use, and since you’re paying them to market your house you think they should split the cost with you.
no way, its totally optional…i bought a stupid plan for 300 bucks and i had to pay $ 95 bucks everytime they came out…im not sure if the repairs would have even cost $ 95 if i just called a repairman each time….by the way, they didnt fix, they just patched stuff up…and i did have to fight with them when they sent a crappy plumber, i think it was called amerishield….i guess its not bad for the piece of mind if you are buying a crib for the first time, but you dont really need it.
