Choosing your own title company allows you to ensure that you’re choosing a quality, responsible company that will handle the paperwork in a timely manner and make sure everything with your closing goes smoothly. Since the buyer will benefit from title insurance, you want the title company to be working in your best interest!
Your agent may have a preferred title company, but don’t feel forced into hiring it. In fact, it’s a good idea to ask your agent for recommendations, but you should research those companies before choosing.
And, asking your agent for recommendations is just one way to find potential title companies. You can also get recommendations from family and friends, especially if they’ve recently bought a house. In the end, you want a company that puts you first and has the experience to handle your transaction, no matter what comes up.
