Title Insurance: Strengthening America One Household At A Time

Believe it or not, title insurance is an integral aspect of almost every single American's life. By benefiting each individual, we in turn work to strengthen the entire United States of America. While this may seem like a lofty claim at first, a closer look will reveal how our entire country can benefit from the title insurance industry. We Boost The Economy The economy thrives when citizens have more money in their pockets and, consequently, more money to spend at local businesses. By strategically timing our real estate closings , we save home buyers approximately $10 billion in interest every year. Not only that, but we save home buyers roughly $1 billion per day  by speeding up the closing process. All of those dollars saved will stay in the hands of each American homeowner, which gives them more money to put back into the economy. We Protect The Children As every parent can tell you, raising children is expensive. When a child's parents divorce, the parent who doe

3 Things You Didn't Know About Foreclosures

If you've ever been exposed to the real estate market, you're probably familiar with the term "foreclosure." A foreclosure occurs when homeowners fail to make the necessary payments on their mortgage loan, and the bank repossesses the property as collateral on the loan. When this happens, the bank typically either auctions the home off or puts it on the market like any other property for sale. Foreclosed homes can be enticing options for buyers because they are often priced much lower than other comparable homes on the market. Foreclosures are not always as benign as they may seem, however. Here is a quick look at some of the things you may not know about them, courtesy of the team at our Lake of the Ozarks Title Company . Foreclosed Homes May Require More Expensive Repairs Because the property owners were unable to pay for their mortgage payment, they were likely unable to pay for any repairs and/or upgrades to their home as well.
