Let First National Title Company Guide You to a Smooth Property Closing

While there are people that decide to go it alone through online services when buying or selling real estate, experts caution against a completely solo act.

If you’re willing to put in the time and effort to find a potential buyer – often no easy feat – it is wise to then hand over the reins to a closing company. Reputable firms like First National Title Company (FNTC) can handle all of your title, closing and escrow services.

FNTC can guide you to a smooth property closing!

While providing the security of knowing your deal is being handled properly, using a title/closing company takes the headache from requirements that go along with a sale. In addition, title, closing and escrow services can be more complicated than you think.

Still not convinced? Here are some other very good reasons to use a title/closing company:

1 Just about everyone who sells a home uses the services of a title/closing company, which handles most of the documentation involved. You get your deal closed with one third-party vendor that provides title insurance, escrow, and closing services. So with all that you get out of working with a title/closing company, it’s most often the most efficient and affordable option.

2 One of the key roles of a title/closing company is providing insurance for both the lender and the buyer, and to do that a search must be conducted to prove no one else has a claim to the property. This process is called a title search, whereby the history of the title is examined. This information is then used to ensure the buyer gets a clear title.

3 Escrow services are also an important function in closing real estate transactions, and this service involves the handling and safekeeping of all money involved in the transaction. Title/closing companies ensure that the funds are properly disbursed to the correct parties upon the settlement of the transaction.

4 Recording certain documents (e.g. deeds and mortgages) to ensure the transaction legal and valid, is another service provided by the title/closing company.
