"C.A.R. recently launched its Home Payment Protection Program (HPPP), which provides a home buyer with mortgage payment assistance in the event of a job layoff.  The program is offered by REALTORS® to sellers at the time of listing as an added incentive to prospective buyers.  It is paid for by the seller and is completely optional.  The program covers both first-time and repeat buyers for 12 months from close of escrow and will make up to six mortgage payments up to $1,000 or $1,500, depending on the coverage level the seller chooses.  By offering HPPP as an added incentive to buyers, sellers have an additional way of differentiating their home from others and can sell their home more quickly.  It’s a win-win benefit for buyers, sellers, and REALTORS®."

Throw in a home warranty as well, and you may just attract a few more buyers! (without breaking the bank).  :-)
