Foote Title Group – Choices
We make choices about what we’re gonna have for dinner. We make choices about whether we’re going to go for a walk, or ride a bike. We make choices about who we are going to deal with when we go to the dentist, who were going to have do our hair. We make all kinds of choices and we make those consciously because we know what’s important to us and we understand things that we need to be thinking about so we can make those choices.
So the choices that we make, we make those because we’re informed and we understand that it’s up to us to make those choices and we have all the information or do the research to make the right choice.
You know if we get in a car accident we do some research get some referrals and deal with a company that can do a good job and taking care of our car. When we go to the doctor we are always looking for good referrals and looking up information about the doctor. When you get insurance you make informed choices not only about who you’re going to deal with for your insurance maybe for your home or your car but also other things that go into that insurance. And I’m offering you all of these thoughts because the one thing that I think and I found out while I was doing some market research over the past week with some 20 somethings, I realized that they have no idea what a title company or a settlement company does or that it even existed. So I had to figure out how to change my wording so that they could understand not only what at title company does but how important it is to the home buying process and that it’s crucial to make a choice on which one to work with for yourself.
I really recommend you to do some research, ask some questions, talk to people that you know and make sure that you’re making a choice not because someone else says its the right choice for you but you’re done your research on the company that is going to insure your ownership. I want you to do some research, I want you to understand what a title company is. When you’re buying your first home somebody will say to at some point where do you want to closing? If you were going to a new dentist or doctor you would be doing your research and looking for reviews and referrals. This is that important to make that choice for yourself too! This is the most expensive item you will ever buy and you work very hard for it and you need to make sure that no one can ever take it away from you and the right title company will properly protect you!
A home closing company does a couple of things depending on where they’re located. One of the things they do is take all of the paperwork and all of the people and all of the inspections and all of the money and pull those all together. So we take all of those moving parts and pieces and coordinate them so when you’re ready to go to closing everything is pulled together for you in the right place at the right time with all the right information.
The second thing we do, and really an important reason why you should choose your title company yourself, is we do a title search to check the ownership records of that property because we want to make sure that no one can ever come back and try to take that home away or cause you any kind of problem once you take ownership of that home. You know one of the most terrible things in the world would be if you’re sitting there watching TV watching your favorite awards program or watching your favorite sports and someone knocks on the door and says, “hey you know I own this house and you’re going have to move out”. So we search that land records where the ownership chain of your property is, we go back and check for any irregularities and fix any of those things that happened in the past that we may find.
The third thing and very important thing we do is we take in all the money from all the parties and then we pay all the bills for you and make sure that’s all taken care of. So these are things that you need to think about when you’re choosing a company to do your home closing.
At Foote Title Group we have a track record of a little more than 30 years of making sure that those things are reviewed, questioned and resolved and we insure that no one can take your property from you. You will get an insurance policy at closing from us that protects you.
So when you make choices about all other types of things I want you to understand what a home closing company does and why that choice that choice is so important too.
