They also offer HVAC rentals and service contracts.You're telling me $800k home builders are eking out a living on water tank rentals? Why don't they rent out the HVAC, toilets and everything else?

You can buy your dream home, but hot water heater only for rent
I assume the water heater contractors pay a small kickback.
You miss a LOT of details if you don't have a good agent, and many new home buyers don't have agents.
For example AC was an add on to my spec home.
Payback on water heater is just a few years, FYI my rental died/needed repairs at 11 years, that's when I chose to replace it.
