Understanding The Real Estate Process

closingprocess.gifIf you’ve recently purchased any Boulder real estate you may have worked with LandAmerica Title.

As a part of that process you probably got this huge stack of paperwork. No, not the one at the closing table. That’s something different and yeah, that was important stuff but I’m talking about the one labeled Title Commitment. Most buyers don’t have a clue what to do with those docs and frankly, the majority of the time there isn’t really much you need to do.

whatstitle.gifIt occurs to me though that buyers and sellers do often have a lot of questions about their transaction, the process and how to best take care of their interests when buying or selling real estate. I’ve always tried to help my clients understand that I may know many things and I’m not always the expert. Hard to believe huh? What I am is often a great resource for contacts and information sources. I think it’s important to look at a Realtor as a partner in the process and the smartest thing we can do for our clients is to guide them towards the proper professionals such as attorneys and accountants when the questions get specialized.

5things.gifThe same could be true for Title Insurance and Title Commitments. Having said that, LandAmerica has a neat resource online called KnowYourClosing. While everything on this site doesn’t always apply to you as laws and real estate closing processes vary from state to state, this is an excellent resource for information and answers to some questions you probably didn’t even know to ask.
