I have been arguing for over a year that consumers CAN READ AND THINK and if you just give them a place with information available THEY CAN MAKE THEIR OWN DECISIONS concerning what services they want for closing and title insurance. IT'S YOUR MONEY.
I believe shopping for title insurance and closing services is no more hard than shopping for a Realtor or mortgage lender or a washing machine. Heck, buying a car is more expensive and more complicated than picking a title insurer and closing service. If the info is there, you can decide.
Realtors and mortgage lender seem to think that they should do the shopping for you.
This means that they can play the referral fee game or the favor game but what it doesn't necessarily mean is that you will get quality service at a fair price.
I BELIEVE YOU ARE CAPABLE AND FREE TO DECIDE FOR YOURSELF.
Would you help me and comment here on the subject? You can be anonymous but I AM interested in your opinion.
