It's not my role to play and it would be inappropriate for me to advise. Buyers can check with the title officer with questions or consult their attorney.

As a Realtor we really have no role in choosing what type of deed is best, I can explain what each but also refer them to the closing lawyer who can say what is best

An unencumbered one! Buuuuut, I am not a title officer, so I leave it up to the closing attorney handling the title search and closing.

Our Contract calls for the BUYER to consult with their CPA/tax/legal advisor for independent advice prior to deciding what type of deed and way to hold title.

Title officer might provide a handout listing and comparing the various ways to hold title, and/or the various types of deeds that may pertain to their purchase.

We as real estate brokers (along with title escrow staff) would direct our clients to independent legal advice.
