Old Republic Home Protection Announces “Why I Use Home Warranties” Contest Winners

SAN RAMON, Calif.--()--In their recent “Why I Use Home Warranties” Contest, Old Republic Home Protection asked real estate professionals to submit, in 150 words or less, the value they believe a home warranty brings to every real estate sale transaction.

ORHP was thrilled to receive thousands of entries and pleased with the dominant themes that users shared: “They provide priceless peace of mind,” “They create a win-win-win for all parties involved in a real estate transaction,” “Reduce liability,” “They protect against ‘Murphy’s Law,’” “They help me earn referral business,” and “They allow me and my clients to sleep at night.”

It was difficult to narrow the entries to six winners, but the mission was accomplished. ORHP would like to congratulate each of its winners – one $500 winner from each of the company’s six geographic regions:
