Do I Need My Deed to Sell My Home?

Do I Need My Deed to Sell My Home?

​Quite often I have seller’s ask me, “Do I need to bring my deed to settlement?”  Or they have their deed for at our listing appointment.  You do not need your deed to sell your home.  Why not?  Selling a home is not like selling a car.  It is a matter of public record that you own your home, unlike with a car.   Your deed is recorded with the county. And when you sell, the closing company can access your deed electronically.  So don’t worry if you can’t find your deed.  You do not need it to sell!
