Title Insurance and Escrow services are elements of the home selling and buying process that too many people over look. Not all companies are created equal. It's important that you have the most communicative, most knowledgable folks on your side.
West Coast Home Inspection
A state certified home and pest inspector is an invaluable resource when you're buying a home. You don't want someone who is out to kill the deal, and you don't want someone who will overlook issues. You want an inspector who will educate you about the home you are buying.
When selling, consider a pre-inspection to make sure your home is in optimal condition.
