First Title Knowledge

Title Industry Knowledge

The title knowledge tree is different from the giving tree in the fact that it does the opposite – it retains. Navigating the ins and outs of the title industry can be a lengthy, and often confusing. Title knowledge isn’t something that can be gifted or bought, it’s a practiced learning of information. Complex information, which may drive you to conduct various search engine queries that will hopefully break down the industry jargon and work-flow processes. At First Title, we want to do what we can to educate our clients and visitors on all aspects of the title process – from obtaining the closing quote to post-closing. Scroll through the Title Knowledge menus to obtain a brief synopsis of the given topic. Contact us with any questions or title knowledge you wish to obtain! *Note: Please check back weekly for additional content.
