Why Buy Title Insurance?
Protect your largest investment
You’re finally ready to buy a home. You’ve been saving up for this. But is your investment protected? A home is likely the biggest investment a person will make in their life. It only makes sense to make sure that investment is protected. We insure everything else that’s valuable to us – our life, car, health, etc. For a one-time fee, owner’s title insurance can protect property rights for as long as you own your home.
Reduce Your Risk
When buying a home, there could be hidden issues that arise only after you purchase your home. Purchasing owner’s title insurance is the best way to protect yourself from unforeseeable title issues. Don’t think it will happen to you? Think again. Title claims can include:
- Unknown heir of a previous owner claiming ownership
- Pending legal action against the property
- Outstanding mortgages & judgments
- Liens against the property due to unpaid taxes
Value of Title Insurance
Owner’s title insurance is a one-time fee. Only one-time! In addition, the cost of title insurance is low relative to the value it provides, typically only costing around 0.5% of the home’s purchase price.1
Cover Your Heirs
As long as you or your heirs own your home, your property is protected through owner’s title insurance. Protect your family’s future by getting owner’s title insurance.
