Titling your home to your children can be very risky. Once your children own your home, they can sell the home out from under you or simply force you to leave, a major risk should a child develop credit or marital issues. Gifting your home also gives up equity you may need later to move to an adult community, warmer climate, or more accessible home. It also may sacrifice tax breaks that would be available if you sold the home or left it to your kids when you pass on.
