Buying a home can be one of the most fulfilling purchases you’ll ever make. It’s yours — your own little piece of the American Dream. You’ve made it!
Sure, sometimes it’s stressful. For example, you can no longer call the landlord when the toilet won’t stop running or the air conditioner is on the blink. That’s on you, buddy — you and your wallet. You could have years when everything operates on an even keel, but you might also face broken appliances, roof leaks and tree roots growing into the sewer line.

The best part: Some of these smart money moves only take seconds, but can save tons!

Or you wake up to a non-functioning fridge full of rapidly spoiling food. All sorts of things can go wrong with a home — and when the mortgage and other home-related expenses already have you feeling a bit cash-poor, you can find yourself slipping into debt to cover essential repairs.
Fortunately, with a home warranty from America’s 1st Choice Home Club, you can cover your home’s components for as little as $390 a year. Coverage options vary, but a home warranty can protect plenty of problem areas: appliances, electrical, plumbing, heating and air conditioning systems and lots more.
Plus, their in-house service team is available 24/7 to help and ensure a hassle-free repair process if anything goes wrong. You can even choose your own technician, or they can send you one from their nationwide network if you don’t have someone in mind.
All over America, homeowners are choosing AFC Home Club for the savings, service and peace of mind that they deliver.

2. Get a Better rate on your mortgage
Maybe you got a great deal on your mortgage years ago, but have you checked the rates lately?
