What is the Title Company's Role in the
Real Estate Sales Process?
It has come to my attention over my years in the real estate business that consumers generally are confused about many aspects of the sales process. The title company's role in the process seems to be one of those areas of the greatest confusion.
So what's the big deal? Don't you just make an offer and sign some documents? Not so fast!
The title company plays a very important role, indeed. Their job primarily is to ensure the that the chain of title is clear for the new buyer, and to also insure the title.
Lots of research goes into the process. From gathering tax information, to helping settle past accounts, the title company not only researches the chain of title but most importantly issues insurance guaranteeing the chain of title. This is most important to buyers receiving a mortgage for their new property.
