Investing in title insurance can save buyers and lenders from possible future headaches related to unforeseen contract disputes. Here is how it works and what it can cover.

How it Works

Title insurance works in reverse—it covers problems that occurred before you purchased a home rather than after an acquisition, including late discoveries. A buyer must obtain title insurance before the property transaction, and there is only a one-time payment. Refinancing may require a new policy—otherwise, it is for the life of the homeowner's loan.

Pros and Cons of Getting Ahead on Mortgage Payments - Ann Arbor MI - Real Estate One Matt Dejanovich

The premise behind prepaying a home mortgage is to pay off debt faster to avoid paying interest. Many people have a goal of paying off a mortgage before retirement, but it may be possible to pay it off even earlier.

Investment Comparison

By making larger initial payments to pay off a loan early, one can save money that would usually get funneled into interest. Once the mortgage is paid, the homeowner can then use those savings to invest wisely. Alternatively, instead of waiting to pay off a loan, homeowners can invest money that would go toward a portion of their loan into the stock market. This can be risky to do while still paying off a loan because there are no guarantees on returns with the stock market.

When discussing real estate photography with a realtor, these factors are imperative to highlight both the home’s strengths as well as the professionalism of the realtor or agency.

Most homeowners also practice energy-saving habits, such as powering down electronics and turning off lights when not in use. However, when considering upgrades and renovations, it pays to think green as often as possible. When realtors list homes for sale, most find that green upgrades will have not only lowered monthly bills but also raised the value of a home.
