A handy brochure for you to review
What do you really need to know about title and escrow to sell your house? It depends on how the title is held for the property. Is it an estate? Is the property in a trust? Is your marital status different from when you bought the house to when you want to sell it? Are there details about boundaries and encroachments and CC&R's a future Buyer will need to know?
Don't worry if it sounds complicated, that is what your agent and title representatives are there for. We will look at your specific situation and figure out what needs to be done to be market ready.

This is the first step. Start anywhere, but just start. It is never too early. Drop books off in little free libraries around town. Take a bag or two down to any donation place once a week. Put things on Buy Nothing or FB Marketplace. Or if you need more help, contact me and I can recommend some more comprehensive resources.
