With Halloween right around the corner, I figured it would be a good time to give you some important information so you can make sure that you don’t have any “title ghosts” hiding behind your house.

If you’re getting ready to sell your home now or at any point in the future, you need to make sure everything is in order for you to convey a clean title to the buyer who will eventually purchase the home.

Judgments and liens could be put on your house without you even knowing it. We want to make sure that those ghosts are handled and cleared off before we even think about listing.


Also keep in mind that if there is anything you need to disclose about the property to future buyers, you need to have it in writing. The previous seller’s disclosure should help. Another thing to do would be to see if there are any legal issues that need to be handled, such as a name change.

If you’re thinking about listing your home this fall, don’t hesitate to reach out and give us a call or send us an email. We’re ready and willing to come on over, take a look around, and find any “ghosts” that may be hidden to ensure a smooth transaction.
