Year in Review 2019
What a year 2019 has been! The housing market has stayed strong and interest rates remained low, making for an awesome year for all of us in the Real Estate Industry. There was also a lot of change up on Capitol Hill this year that directly impacted the world of title and escrow.
First with the passing of the RON Bill (Remote Online Notarization) we will soon have the ability to conduct remote closings due to the fact we will have the ability to Notarize documents remotely. There is still quite a bit of work being done through the Attorney General’s office with the help of the Utah Land Title Association to put prudent policies and procedures in place for the protection of the consumer. Mortgage Lenders will also have to get on board and comfortable with these policies and procedures, but we believe we are headed in the right direction.
Another Bill that passed now allows Realtors, Mortgage Lenders and Builders to have ownership interests in title companies or agencies. While this is certain to have a big impact on the title and escrow industry Integrated Title is proud to remain as an independent neutral third party and true fiduciary to the buyers, sellers and borrowers here in our great State without any influence or pressure from related or affiliated parties in a transaction. Remember, you always have a choice for title and escrow services so be sure to do some research and choose independent professionals who have proven track records with the experience, knowledge and expertise required to remain neutral and protect the interests of all parties involved in a Real Estate Transaction.
Some more exciting news is that we have put a lot of time, money and effort into remodeling and upgrading our offices, software and technology! We think you will find our new website, www.itstitle.com, very user friendly with a lot of advanced features for seller net sheets and title insurance premium quotes! We have also added many new CE classes to offer our Real Estate Agents something new and innovative which will hopefully provide them with some knowledge and tools to assist them in growing their business in 2020! Remember, our staff has the experience, knowledge and expertise to provide an elite closing experience at every closing. We take great pride in providing peace of mind in insuring the American Dream of Home Ownership and we truly love and appreciate all our valued friends and customers and look forward to a happy, healthy and prosperous 2020 for all.
