Wouldn’t it be nice if you were fully prepared to handle additional orders generated by a refinance boom fueled by low interest rates, without having to invest in additional processing capacity? It is possible; continue reading…
Mortgage rates nose-dive toward all-time lows as a refinance fee is ended. Refinance applications jumped, as the 30-year fixed mortgage rate declined to its lowest level since February 2021,” says Joel Kan, the MBA’s forecaster. “With over 95% of refinance applications for fixed-rate mortgages, borrowers are looking to secure a lower rate for the life of their loan.

Homeowners are stampeding toward mortgage rates that have been driven back toward all-time lows by worries about the Delta variant and by the elimination of a widely despised fee on refi loans.
Good news for Title Agents!
Yes, You heard it Right! It’s good news. Title Agents will see a big increase in volume as a result of the refinance boom.
This should result in increased revenue and a higher profit margin. Competitors, on the other hand, are taking advantage of the current interest rate environment.
The crucial question is whether you’re prepared to take on the increased volume from your lender clients and drive growth for your Firm?
Let’s be honest: if you aren’t, others may be eager to grab your additional business.
To help Title Agents take advantage of the increased volume, we’ve put up a fast 3-point checklist of “must haves”:
1. Capability of Delivering Reports much Faster than Competitors: The demand for faster delivery of property title searches is now greater than ever. The advancement of technology has resulted in a significant decrease in the average time to close a loan, and this trend is expected to continue. To thrive in this scenario, Title Agents must ensure that they are at the top of their game with every order they receive. This may appear difficult and costly if excess capacity is required (especially when the market is volatile). Working with the right third-party vendors can help Title Agents easily meet and exceed their turn time commitments to lenders.
We Deliver Best Turnaround Time in the Industry – Wondering How?
Our experienced and in-house experts work round the clock in different schedules –
This unique differentiator gives us the edge in delivering search orders ahead of deadlines. The Title agencies who we support, we have been working round the clock and making overnight deliveries.
We believe in strict adherence to Turn times (TAT). Thanks to our 24/7 work environment, very well appreciated among the Title Professionals Community.
2. Having a Nationwide Reach/Network is Advantageous: Lenders are expanding their footprint across the country all the time, and they expect their long-term vendor partners to be able to produce ownership search results in any state or county. One approach for title agents to meet this demand is to continually expand their labour force or network so that they can handle orders outside of their geographic areas. Given the volatile nature of the mortgage sector, this is neither straightforward nor advisable — and can quickly erode your profits. Partnering with companies like Pristine, which already has a solid online database and abstractor network in place, is a preferable option.
