6 Reasons Title Companies Grow

by outsourcing loan servicing

Our title friends have set an impressive pace as they’ve scored wins for their customers during this unprecedented year.

But for every win, there have been those cases that have strict restrictions on traditional mortgages which prevents them from closing.  When Buyer and Seller have already agreed to purchasing terms, a short-term owner finance may be just the thing to move those loans that need a few extra months to close.  i.e. Forbearance plans ending, repayment plans, waiting on income tax documents.

Navigating these cases is what Southern Loan Servicing does best through owner-financing solutions. With forecasts signaling more growth in the housing market in 2021, partnering with us as your owner-financing specialist is a strategic step to grow your title business and offer a new way forward for many of your customers!

Here are six reasons why you should work with us: 

  • We turn challenges into opportunities. Facilitating owner-financed or land contract sales can expand your customer base.
  • We problem solve for you. Owner-financed files that come across your desk may seem daunting. Our servicing experts can review your closing documents beforehand to save you from headaches later.
  • We know escrow. We are experts in knowing how property taxes and insurance funds should be held and paid. 
  • We keep you in compliance. We have dedicated compliance officers to monitor IRS and licensing requirements. We file important forms tied to loan servicing for you, including the 1099INT and 1098 for mortgage interest that  individual lenders might accidentally miss.
  • Offering loan servicing comes at no additional cost to the title company. The buyers and sellers handle all costs tied to the transaction.
  • You can provide excellent service on both sides of the loan. Owner-financed loans typically will return to your title company to refinance or cancel the mortgage once paid.

A Partner You can trust

Southern Loan Servicing is here to be the loan servicing provider title companies have come to trust for more than three decades. We know your summer is off to a hot start, but there are still some deals that can’t be closed using traditional financing.

That’s where Owner Financing, Land Contracts, Bond for Deeds– and Southern Loan Servicing — can come into play for you and your customers. 

The Southern Loan Servicing team are the experts you want working on your side for these deals. We’re 100 percent committed to security, efficiency and leveraging our experience to make sure your clients’ dream homes don’t slip away from them.

Owner-financed loan agreements give buyers and sellers the flexibility to agree to the terms of a purchase – and put their plan into action. We pride ourselves in an unwavering commitment to the security of these arrangements. With cyber criminals looking to take advantage of the real estate closing process through mortgage or wire fraud, Southern Loan Servicing offers the safest loan administration solution on the market.

For those reasons, and many more, loan servicing is quickly becoming its own specialty. That’s why you need a company that knows what it’s doing. 

Here’s just some of what you get when you do business with Southern Loan Servicing:

– Access to a team of loan-servicing experts that work with Title Companies to ensure a seamless transaction from closing table to long-term clients
– An innovative customer-service model, with the most up-to-date information at our buyers and seller’s fingertips, 24/7, through our online portal
– An attention to detail and follow through on loan administration, so clients receive a seamless experience

Alternative to traditional Mortgage

Picture this: A buyer finds their dream home, but the fairytale is derailed by a financing nightmare. It’s not hard to imagine, especially now. Though the housing market is bouncing back from the initial shock of the COVID-19 pandemic, buyers are facing tougher requirements in securing a mortgage.
increasingly, mortgage companies are requiring higher credit scores, larger down payments and longer track records of financial stability from hopeful buyers than before COVID-19. Adding to their concerns, buyers who fall short of these strict guidelines could find themselves facing higher interest rates or delays in traditional lenders processing their application. Not even government-backed loans, which are typically great options for first-time homebuyers, are immune to these types of mortgage overlays.

This new reality makes owner financing a great and innovative option for eager buyers and sellers. They decide a repayment process that is feasible for both parties, not the bank, and can skip the arbitrary lending requirements. That means they can get to the closing table faster and go on living life. Read more here.

Simple and safe loan administration

We stand with our real estate closing partners to provide the most accessible and user-friendly loan servicing on the market! Title companies truly have been industry leaders during the public health crisis, embracing technology in new ways to maintain a high standard of customer service.
