Buyers Are King...How To Rule Safely...!!!

We bloggers here on Active Rain are being challenged to post a content-rich consumer post for prospective buyers...SO...  

Prospective purchasers of real estate, listen up...!!!  

Before you even look at your first home consideration, let me describe briefly the transaction process...  

A real estate transaction is a fairly complex, significantly important, and usually financially straining process...focus on the word STRAINING...  

Now don't look at STRAINING as meaning STRESSFUL...  

Look at the transactional process as a giant filter or, better yet, a series of filters, designed to separate out all the impurities and eliminate them from the transaction...we begin with the offer, the agreement of sale, the single most important document in a real estate purchase...this document gives us the course through which we must steer this ship, and the filters we must navigate through, in order to arrive safely at our destination...our goal...FINAL SETTLEMENT...and accomplished in a filtered, streamlined, minimally stressful, efficient, and hopefully pleasant manner...  

The Title Company is the single most important FILTER in our analogy...WHY???  

Because the Title Company is the last line of defense against avoiding an unpleasant and even possibly corrupt closing experience...THE LAST FILTER in the series of filters...the filter stops here...  

This analogy only works if you have an independent title company whose ultimate allegiance is to its INSURED (usually the buyer)...  

If you opt for a ONE STOP SHOP closing transactional experience, your title company is really only a facilitator to protect the closing from going south and thus protecting lucrative commissions to real estate agents and/or affiliated lender entities...  

Is this always the case...???  

By no means!  

There are many caring ONE STOP SHOP title operations that operate in an ethical manner...problem is...can we the consumer determine which to trust and which to stay clear of...You'd better have a great 6th sense to make the correct discernment in this regard...  

Consumers...Have I frightened you...I apologize, but I am passionately involved in assuring pleasant, efficient, ethical and stress free closing experiences to every customer...  

Only then will my goal be realized and consumers really be king...!!!
