What Does a Title Company Do?
For this podcast I sat down with Chris Finney owner of Finney Law Firm and Ivy Pointe Title. During our conversation we discussed what does a title company do, title work, covenants, title insurance, the real estate closing process and more. This podcast is helpful for those about to purchase or sell real estate by showing you what to expect during closing, and how the title company helps you get your your home bought or sold! I hope you enjoy the podcast and find it informative. Please also consider sharing with those who may find it useful.
