2021 wasn’t so radically different from 2020 in terms of a continued adaptation to extreme volume, the ever-changing coronavirus environment, and embracing innovative approaches to closings. With steady growth in home prices, an ongoing high level of demand, and new ways to speed up the transaction process, we did our best to cope with this year’s tumultuous environment.
We hope by this point you’ve already seen the results from this year’s State of the Title Industry survey, but in case you haven’t, we gathered several industry experts for a discussion on this year’s results. The core topics of the conversation lead us to uncover several savvy strategies for tackling the challenges the title industry is facing, and those to come.
