Are you considering selling your property in Pennsylvania as a For Sale by Owner (FSBO)? Navigating the real estate market on your own can be a rewarding experience, but it also comes with its fair share of challenges. It is also important to note that per NAR (National Association of REALTORS), sellers not only sell their properties quicker, but on average make 16% more when listing their property with a licensed Realtor. If you do choose to move forward on your own, please contact us right away so we can begin the process of getting you to closing.

Whether you’re a seasoned FSBO seller or it’s your first time, partnering with our title company can provide you with invaluable assistance and guidance from A-Z in every step along the way.

1. Title Search and Examination
One of the essential steps in a real estate transaction is conducting a thorough title search to ensure that the property’s title is clear and free of any liens, encumbrances, or legal issues. We’ll carefully examine the property’s title history, ensuring that you and your potential buyer have peace of mind when it comes to property ownership.
2. Title Insurance
Title insurance is crucial for both buyers and sellers. It protects against unforeseen title defects and claims that may arise after the sale. Our team can help you secure title insurance, providing an added layer of security for your FSBO transaction.
3. Escrow Services
Safeguard your funds during the transaction by utilizing our escrow services. We’ll hold and disburse funds in accordance with the terms of your sales agreement, ensuring that all parties involved are protected.
4. Municipal Requirements
Many municipalities in Pennsylvania require dye tests or inspections before property can be sold. We can walk you through those requirements, and inform you who to contact for completion and what the associated costs may be. A lot of times we are able to order these items for you, but often you will have to have them completed yourself as they may require entry to the property.
5. Document Preparation and Filing
The paperwork involved in a real estate transaction can be overwhelming. We’ll prepare and file all the necessary documents, including the deed, mortgage documents, and any required disclosures, making sure everything is completed correctly and efficiently.
6. Closing Services
When it’s time to close the deal, we’ll coordinate the closing, making sure all parties are well informed and that the transaction is executed smoothly. Our experienced professionals will guide you through the closing day with confidence.

How to get started:

In order for us to open title for you, we will require a signed sales contract between the buyers and sellers of the property. We always recommend you contact an attorney for this aspect of the transaction. If you do decide to do this on your own, you can consult the state recognized PAR (Pennsylvania Association of Realtors) Agreement as a guide or search for a basic agreement form online. We are always happy to refer an attorney or realtor in your area for assistance. Pennsylvania Land Titles will not negotiate terms of the agreement between the buyer and seller. Please contact us today if you have any questions. We look forward to helping you achieve your real estate goals with confidence.
