Once your payment is complete, if you prefer a notary close we will provide a notarized copy of the deed via email an original copy will be sent to the county for recording. Once the county records the deed (typically 3-4 weeks) they will send the original deed directly to you.
If you prefer to receive title insurance, we will contact the title company to open escrow. If we have already purchased title insurance (noted in the listing), it will be less expensive to use the title company we used originally as they will typically waive the title related fees, so only the escrow fee will be required. You will wire the funds to the title company, complete any related paperwork to record the deed (e.g., supporting documentation for the county) and put the title insurance policy in your name and we will execute the deed. The title company will then record the deed and any supporting documentation with the county, transfer the funds to us and issue your title insurance policy. If we already received title insurance on the property and we use the same title company, the process will likely only take 1-2 weeks.
