How to Choose a Title Insurance Agency
Updated: Jun 9
Finding your new home is the first step. Finding the right title company is the next. Having the right title team by your side can mean the difference between having a pleasant homebuying experience - or having one you’d like to forget.
Your title insurance agency does more than just offer you title insurance. They get you through the process, ensuring that the title to the home is clear and that the closing is quick and orderly, And, yes, they continue to protect you and your lender in the future thanks to your title insurance.
So, how do you choose the right title insurance agency?
Ask for Recommendations
There is something to be said about personal experience - and word-of-mouth referrals. The home-buying process can be stressful and, at times, overwhelming. So, if your friend, family, colleague, or neighbor is referring you to a title company because they had a pleasant experience - that means a lot.
Professionalism and Experience
This is where you get to do a bit of research. You will want to dig a little deeper into the title company. Looking at their website and checking out their social media outlets is a good place to start. Do they offer the services you are looking for? Do they present themselves as a leader in the field? Do they have testimonials or reviews?
All of this can help you get a feel for the title agency and whether or not it may be a good fit for you.
A Great Location
Your title company doesn’t have to be within a mile of your current home or new home. But, you don’t want to choose a title company that is too far away as this can complicate things when it comes to signing, closing, etc. So make sure that the title company you choose has a convenient location.
Did you find a title company that isn’t so convenient? If you find a title company you prefer, but they are not close by, see if they offer remote settlements. This can allow you to take advantage of what they have to offer regardless of the distance.
Give the Title Company a Call
Depending on your transaction, you can give the title company a call - and ask a few questions. Even if you don’t understand what you are talking about, a quick internet search can provide you with some questions and answers to ask a title company. Judging the responses you get from the title agent can help you decide whether or not this is the right title company for you.
If you are an investor, this is even more important. Many investor purchases can be complex and require a title team that is excellent at what they do. Asking the tough questions and getting the right answers can let you know you are in good hands.
Keep in mind that laws and standards vary from state to state so the answers you get very well may not match the online answer exactly. Just make sure that what they are saying makes sense.
