Selling Real Estate Step 4: Legal Due Diligence.

Obtaining an opinion of your parcel’s legal risks could be one of the smartest things you do before listing your home. The “exceptions documents” listed in Schedule II-B of a parcel’s preliminary title report list the conditions of the home that title insurers will not cover. These circumstances negatively affect the value of your home and often can be mitigated, something you will want to do before you list. Stay in control of your price by knowing exactly what you are selling in order to get your maximum SOLD price.
