It’s really easy. go to a title company and ask for a blank quitclaim deed. You fill it out, Jane maiden, an unmarried woman quit claims to john and jane doe, husband and wife. Or if you want it just in your name, jane doe, a marrird woman as her sole and separate property. Depending on the laws in your state, your husband may need to quitclaim tooif you want the property just in your name. That’s how it is in my state. You will need to get it notarized. 

Then you record said deed or deeds which is really inexpensive, maybe $10 a document with your county records and it’s done. The taxes should update automatically. 

A title company will be the best to answer other questions. I think you might not be able to change the insurance until the deed is filed though.

Edit, I work for a title company but states are so different so id definitely check with a title company in your county for the full process
