The closing process doesn’t have to be stressful and confusing. In fact, your title company should strive to create the most stress-free closing experience. On top of duties like clearing the title, negotiating payoffs and filling out paperwork, a good title company should have the following traits to help you through the process.
1. Communicate consistently
Communication in the real estate industry is important to a successful home closing experience. Buying and selling a home are among the biggest commitments you will make during your life. Having a title company that is consistently on top of any issues that arise can truly help with the stress of the process. They should be able to answer any questions you may have, as well as give you updates during the closing process directly or through your real estate professional.
One of the most important forms of communication in title is for wiring and secure transfers. A good title company should make you aware of their safety procedures to prevent cyberfraud. They are required to have processes in place to ensure your funds are kept as safe as possible.
2. Close in a timely manner
A quality title company works diligently to ensure a timely and effective closing. Every title case is different, and a good title company will work with all parties to ensure a clear title is ready when the title policy is ready to be given. Despite special cases, title companies should take an average of 2 weeks to gather the necessary items for a close. A closing with financing can take up to 30-60 days to accomplish.
3. Provide excellent customer service
A title company knows house buying is a serious event. A quality title company will help remove the stress of the final steps and want to celebrate this big commitment along with you. While the concept of title and issuance of a title policy may cause head scratches, title companies are there for you to take all the worries out the closing so you have an memorable and enjoyable closing experience.
