There are other issues besides title insurance.
Is there a mortgage on the property? If so what are the lenders guidelines regarding title transfers? They likely have the option to call the loan if the title is transferred out of your name. 
Are you the only one on title?
What about property insurance? Does the homeowners policy cover this type of arrangement? Last thing you need is a loss and the insurance company telling you that they're not paying out because the ownership status was not disclosed to them properly and is not in compliance with your policy.
Is this an investment property with other partners involved? Is that why you're trying to transfer title to the Corp?
1. No mortgage on the property.
2. Property insurance was worked out with the insurance agent beforehand since transferring the property to the Corp was the plan from the beginning.
3. And the reason I want to transfer it is because the property was bought from the bank as a foreclosure and since I submitted the buy offer to the bank under my name the only way I could go ahead and close was that I close with my name, and now i want it off my name for the usual​ reasons.

Limited liability
Just to clarify..The point is to have house under LLC in case someone sues you for falling on the property? If so, I'm not a lawyer but I guess they can only sue up to the value of the LLC (house) and not your personal or other assets. Is that the benefit you want?

It's my understanding that if you get sued personally for any reason like at work, driving etc.. then being that you're the owner of the LLC, it's included in your net worth and assets which the other can sue for. So how will you be protected?

I've heard from lawyers that TIC is the best as if you get sued they can't take your house due to TIC status, while if it's under LLC it's like an asset or business which they can sue for.

Any other benefits I'm missing?

It varies by state and it varies if it's a single member LLC or not, So yeah, an LLC isn't the best 2-way protection, that's one of the reasons I'm moving mine to a C Corp.
