What is TitleClose?
We are happy you asked! TitleClose is a web based, consumer friendly, open, informative and transparent platform for everyone – consumers, Realtors, Lenders, Title/Settlement/Attorney Providers – to shop for products and services needed during the real estate buying, selling or refinancing process, particularly as it applies to closing.
What is a real estate closing?
The time between when you sign a contact to sell or buy a home and the time when you actually transfer title to a new owner is generally knowing as “closing” or “in escrow”. Once the contract is signed, a title/settlement/attorney provider searches the public records to assure clear title can be conveyed to the new buyer, documents are signed, and monies are disbursed by the title/settlement/attorney provider.
Here is a quick video that explains the process.
For a refinance transaction, the same process is followed, but the transaction is between the lender and the borrower. Then a title/settlement/attorney provider searches the public records to assure clear claim to their proposed new mortgage loan, documents are signed and monies are disbursed by the title/settlement/attorney providers.
Depending on either the custom and practice in your area or state law, the “closing” may be performed by either a title company, an escrow company, or an attorney. In some states, one or more of these parties plays a role I coordination with each other.
