How To Select A Title Insurance Agency

How To Select A Title Insurance Agency

Between contract negotiations, title searches and home inspections, selling a home can be nerve-wracking. To add to your tension level, once you’ve accepted the offer, everything is out of your hands. A title insurance agency will get involved at this point and start the background work needed to get the closing to fruition. However, there is no reason for you to feel completely out of the loop at this point. By selecting a title insurance agency that you feel comfortable with and who has a friendly and knowledgeable staff, your closing fears can be alleviated.

You Have The Right To Choose Your Title Insurance Company

Question 4 property guidingIn Lee County, Florida, sellers have the right to choose which title company handles the real estate closing. At our Cape Coral title insurance agency, we often see sellers who have been referred to us by their realtor or friends and family. Indeed, many times sellers do simply go with whichever agency is recommended to them. This usually works out just fine, but if you are ever uneasy about a title insurance agency or feel like you won’t get the service you desire throughout the closing process, you should shop around and find a different agency to handle the closing.

What To Look For When Selecting A Title Insurance Agency

When selecting a title agent to handle your closing, you want to check their level of experience. The company you choose should be licensed in the state in which you are purchasing, first of all. Ideally, you will live nearby so you can easily drop materials off at the agency or pick things up if you need to.

It is also helpful to have as many services housed under one roof as possible. An agency that can provide escrow services and notary services will make things much easier for you. With title insurance, escrow and notary services under one roof, you can rest assured that all necessary paperwork and forms will be on hand at closing time.

In-House Florida And Cape Coral Notary Services

Throughout Florida and in Cape Coral, notary services are necessary at any real estate transaction, which is why we have a full-time notary public signing agent on staff in our office in Fort Myers. Notary publics must sign and witness many documents in a real estate transaction which is why it makes sense for title agencies to have them on staff.

Above all, the agent and supporting staff should be approachable. You should feel comfortable asking questions and contacting the agency with any concerns you have. You are selling a home or property, and you should be confident and comfortable with the entire closing process.

Title Junction is a full service real estate title company serving the area of Fort Myers, Cape Coral and the entire state of Florida since 2005. The company handles a number of real estate title services for both commercial and residential properties. Employees of Title Junction can also act as a witness in courtesy closings as well as an escrow agent or a notary public.
