Sellers!!! I have had years of closings and I cannot stress enough that there is no need to wait until the 11th hour to find out if there is an issue with the title of the home. When selling a house, I can list dozens of examples of how a deal can fall apart if you do not start with all the correct information from the beginning of the sale.
As one of my many services I provide at no cost to you, I run a Title, CO and Lien Search on your home. There may be many reasons to sell quickly and it is important you know everything about what you are selling prior to listing. There could be an open permit, a line of credit never satisfied, a balloon payment on your mortgage you forgot about, or an unpaid tax bill. Anyone can put a lien on your home for any reason. Maybe you bought the home as is, and it was so long ago that the rules of real estate are now different.
Are their other family members that have to make the joint decision for you to actually sell the home? Is the mortgage left on the home more than your market value? Whose name is on the deed? If you want to sell quickly at the highest possible price make sure your ducks are in a row and you have all the answers before you put your home up for sale.
I can go on and on….however by using me as an agent I offer to you this information as soon as we speak so that there will be no scrambling weeks before closing to resolve these issues. Don’t wait 3 months into the deal to have it fall apart. Get educated about what is involved in putting your home on the market for sale.
