Owner’s title insurance: Is it worth the price?

Part 1 of a series

While a homebuyer is required to pay for the lender’s title insurance premium, the owner’s title insurance is optional to the homebuyer, and sometimes homebuyers who are looking to shave dollars off their closing costs consider opting out of the owner's title insurance policy.

They may feel having an owner's title insurance policy is not worth the expense.

A lot of misinformation about owner’s title insurance permeates the blogosphere and, in fact, one Washington DC metropolitan area real estate broker regularly advises homebuyers NOT to spend the extra dollars to purchase owner’s title insurance coverage.

Most of the blog entries by this broker are replete with misunderstandings of the coverage afforded to a homebuyer by the owner’s title insurance.

In an effort to combat these misunderstandings, I am offering an on-going series of “real life” examples of why owner’s title insurance is worth the price.

    Just as I suggested when I wrote about website
    name URL's, it is necessary in a local sell to include
    both keywords you would like to be found for a given page, but additionally your geography.
    Once you've identified the keywords which may have a comparatively lot of monthly searches, the following step is usually to identify those
    that are genuinely tightly related to the page you might
    be creating. Do keyword research to get narrow
    search terms linked to your niche and make use
    of them as titles on your pages.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed
    to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% positive.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
