Choosing Your Title Company

The benefits of choosing a title company that’s right for you.

As you’re shopping around for your new home, you’ll need several different types of protection — you’ll need homeowners insurance, flood insurance, and title insurance. Title insurance can help protect you and your money as you’re closing on a home, and just like any other type of insurance, you can choose which title company is right for you.

Many buyers will go along with the title company their mortgage company suggests, but you don’t have to. There’s actually several benefits of choosing your own title company. Here’s just a few of the benefits you get when you choose your own company.

The Ins and Outs (and the Fees)

When you do your own search for a title company, you can ask the questions you need to get to know the company. You can ask about what types of fees they charge, what types of title services they offer, and you can determine what services are right for you to help reduce your costs. You should listen to your agent, however, and don’t skimp on services that will help keep you protected from fraud, liens, and other mishaps.

Protection for Yourself 

Fraud is increasingly becoming a problem during the home buying process. This is where a title company becomes vital to your home buying experience. Choosing the right title company for you can also help with protection from fraudulent lenders, saving you and your wallet the stress in the long haul. 

Get a Better Understanding

When you’re buying a house and shopping for title insurance, a lot of real estate jargon gets thrown around, and some of it may be difficult to understand. When you’re shopping for your own title company, you can talk to agents within each company to get a better understanding of what everything means and what you’re actually paying for. Take it from a title company, it’s our job to help you, and we love answering your questions to make sure you’re making the right decision with your title company.
