Boring Title: 7 Reasons Why Every Homebuyer Needs Owner’s Title Insurance

Title insurance is boring, but Allied Title & Escrow is here to decode the jargon and make it (somewhat) more interesting. This biweekly feature will explore the mundane (but very necessary!) world of title insurance while sharing interesting stories of two friends’ entrepreneurial careers.

When you buy a home, you are required to get title insurance for the lender who is providing your mortgage. You do have the option to get title insurance for yourself and we highly recommend you do so to protect what is likely your largest investment.

The horror stories are painful to hear about when people decline owner’s title insurance and end up losing their homes because of a rare issue that arises with the title of their home.

Many of our clients are confused by why you need title insurance and so we put together a list that will give you an overview of why it’s a good investment:

  • Protects your largest investment

  • Reduces your risk

  • You can’t beat the value

  • Covers your heirs

  • Nothing compares

  • 8 in 10 homebuyers agree

  • Peace of mind
