We take a lot of pride in our homes, and want to get the best possible price when it comes time to sell. But listing and selling a home is challenging, and we owe it to ourselves to hire the right professionals to handle the preparations for the sale and property closing.

We’re Arkansas’ largest independent real estate title company, and we aren’t owned by any realtor or financial institution. We work for you!

We operate 20 locations throughout Arkansas, and are always ready to answer your specific questions. We also offer a few basic recommendations:

Decide whether you want to use a realtor to assist you with your sale, or sell the home yourself– A good realtor can always be of great assistance, and the realtor would have a vested interest in making sure that qualified buyers will see your home. Additionally, if you use a good realtor, you’ll typically get a higher sales price.

Set the right listing price-The value of your home depends on current market conditions, as well as the recent sale prices of comparable homes in your neighborhood or ZIP code. You don’t want to overprice the property, and have it sit unsold for months.

Buy title insurance-Preparing for closing involves a title search and title insurance that is designed to protect the buyer from title defects (also known as title clouds), there are typically resolved prior to closing. Typical clouds include unpaid taxes, HOA dues, or legal judgments, but can also include fraud and forgery.
