Blackstone Group, the largest owner of rental homes in the United States! (Infographic)

The Blackstone Group LP, the world’s largest private equity firm, became the largest owner of rental homes in the U.S., acquiring 41,000 homes in the past two years.

In October, Blackstone offered the first-ever “rental-home-backed” security on Wall Street.

The bond is backed by just a fraction — 3,207 — of the rental properties owned by Blackstone. Monthly rent checks from the properties will be used to service the $479.1 million security.‘ (Source)

Title Insurance Tips: Saving money on your closing costs!

Save money on New York Title Insurance

Most consumers will shop for the absolute lowest price when it comes to buying a car or even a television set!

And yet many people who are buying a property or refinancing the current mortgage on a residential or commercial property don’t realize that they can choose the title insurance provider for the transaction.

They also may not realize that in many cases savings are possible!

In the majority of cases when a transaction is a purchase the attorney representing the buyer will choose the title insurance provider while in the case of a refinance the bank providing the funds will typically lead that conversation as well.

And in both cases clients will usually be more than happy to go with that choice because to be honest, in the scheme of such a large transaction, who really thinks about the title insurance? The underwriter perhaps but not the provider of the actual policy.

It is just one more check that the borrower is asked to write at the closing table.

The reality, however, is that while the title insurance premium will not vary from firm to firm, the other fees involved in the transaction may with the difference potentially adding up to the hundreds of dollars.

And at the end of the day whose pockets are those hundreds better off  being in, the borrowers or the title company’s?

At Hallmark Abstract Service we take pride in the fact that we have a fee structure that is among the lowest in the business because to us, the compensation that we receive from writing the policy is more than sufficient.

For someone currently involved in a transaction who would like to know if savings are possible, all they need to do is give us the basic details of the transaction and we will send them a title bill of our charges.

Then, if savings are possible and the amount substantial enough, they need only tell the bank or the attorney that they would like another firm to be their title insurance provider.
