Property Profiles

Monarch Title is pleased to provide a property profile service to all of our clients. Property profile reports are important documents to review when purchasing any piece of real estate

What is a Property Profile?

A property profile offers a wealth of information that is useful in understanding a property’s makeup. A property profile report shows all pertinent property and ownership information for any property requested.

Occasionally, people will confuse a property profile report for a title report. While we are able to service both reports, the two differ greatly. A title report will only tell you information about the ownership of the property, whereas property profiles give you details on foundational values of real estate.

General characteristics of a property profile include:

  • Legal description
  • Parcel number
  • Lot size
  • Acquired at book and page
  • Date of purchase
  • Owners of record
  • Comparable market analysis
  • Vesting deed/current owner
  • Open deeds of trust/mortgages
  • Plat map of the property
  • Tax status for the current year
  • HOA liens
  • City liens

Property profile reports need to be completed for all real estate property types including:

  • Residential
  • Commercial
  • Industrial
  • Agricultural
  • Land

Property profiles give you a comprehensive overview of any real estate. This tool is valuable when comparing properties or when purchasing properties unseen.

What is the benefit of a property profile in a real estate transaction?

Property profiles are the fastest way to gain cursory information about a property. The reports will say who the potential buyer is and give the history of the property.

It can quickly answer questions like:

  1. Is the owner of the record the person who is signing all the documents for the sale of the property?
  2. What are the balances of the loans that encumber the property?
  3. Are there other liens or judgments against the property?
  4. Does the legal description match what you are buying – for example, the number of beds and baths?

At Monarch Title, we make it easy for you to place your order.

If you’re interested in a full property profile report, we can help.
