Should I Choose My Own Title Company?

 

For many of us, buying a home is the largest investment we will ever make during the course of our lifetime. The process, from choosing a realtor to changing the locks, seems as if it takes quite the toll on your bank account, causing you to watch every penny as it rolls towards another purchase.

You may be tempted to choose a cheaper title company in order to save money. After all, you’ve been fantasizing about custom drapes and landscaping…not paperwork and permits. However, choosing a cheap title and settlement company doesn’t equate to savings. As a matter of fact, it oftentimes costs the homeowner even more money in the end.

Your representative from your title and settlement company acts as a liaison between you and all of the other entities involved in your real estate transaction. Keeping on task through clear communication helps everyone meet important deadlines. One missed signature can delay the entire closing process.

A quality title and insurance company also ensures that all titles, deeds and important documents are filed in a timely manner and with the appropriate parties. Not filing your legal documents on time can be costly, both in time and money.

Performance Title and Settlement places a strong emphasis on clear, concise communication. It sets the stage for the entire process. We take care of our clients from the beginning, ensuring that all deadlines are met.

So how do you choose your title and settlement company? Many times your realtor will be able to give you a recommendation. It’s a good idea to ask around and do your own research, however. Do not be afraid to ask your title company for a list of referrals and certainly do not be afraid to ask them about their experience.
