Hi Jackie, I wouldn’t waste my time doing a prelim title search. Instead spend more time marketing to find motivated sellers and making the offers. When you go under contract just have a clause that says “contingent upon Buyer receiving marketable and insurable title from Seller…”.
UNLESS, you’re researching title for pre-foreclosures / courthouse step purchases OR you’re just trying to find an owner name/address on an abandoned house to contact them.
Best of success,
