Buying a home is an exhilarating journey filled with dreams, hopes, and the promise of a brighter future. As you embark on this exciting path to homeownership, we at Hub City Title want to ensure that your investment is protected every step of the way. That's why we're here to shed light on the often-overlooked but vitally important aspect of homeownership: owner's title insurance.
7 Reasons a Homebuyer Needs Title Insurance
1. Protects Your Largest Investment Your home is not just a place; it's your largest investment. You wouldn't dream of leaving your car, health, or valuables without insurance, so why should your home be any different? Owner's title insurance is your shield, safeguarding your property rights for as long as you or your heirs own your cherished abode.
2. Reduces Your Risk Unexpected issues can lurk in the background long after you've closed the deal on your new home. Owner's title insurance shields you from legal title discrepancies that may arise down the road. From forgery and fraud to clerical errors, it offers protection against a range of unforeseeable title claims, ensuring your peace of mind.
3. You Can't Beat the Value For such robust protection, owner's title insurance comes at an incredibly reasonable cost, typically around 0.5% of your home's purchase price. This is a small investment considering the invaluable security it provides.
4. Covers Your Heirs Your home isn't just for you; it's a legacy for your heirs. Owner's title insurance safeguards your property rights not only for your lifetime but for the generations that follow, ensuring a seamless transfer of ownership.
5. Nothing Compares While home insurance and warranties focus on the inside of your home, owner's title insurance takes care of the bigger picture—your property rights. It's an indispensable addition to your homeownership toolkit.
6. 8 in 10 Homebuyers Agree Statistics don't lie—more than 80% of homebuyers in the United States opt for owner's title insurance each year. Join the majority and secure your investment.
7. Peace of Mind Finally, owner's title insurance offers the priceless gift of peace of mind. It lets you close on your new home with confidence, knowing that you won't be burdened with unexpected debts or legal issues that could haunt you in the future.
