Remember buying that last car – you negotiated the final price with the salesperson then they turned you over the the “Finanance and Insurance Guy” who hammers you for a warranty, mud flaps, car mats, rust proffing, chip guard and other stuff? Somehow they always get you to buy something.
The back end costs of buying a home are not much different for home buyers – inspection fees, title escrow fees, attorney fees, insurance, yadda, yadda… all adding up to hundreds or even thousands of dollars. When you purchased your last home, did you shop for the best provider with the lowest price? Here comes closing.com
San Diego company Closing.com has wrapped their arms around a consumer and REALTOR solution that shops for the best services. They launched a new website last week that works just like popular home search websites – enter the address and their closing wizzard pulls up vendors for all of the closing services needed. Amy Gallagher, Broker at Century 21 Hometown Realty ran tests on seven properties they have going into escrow and found that closing.com could save her company’s customers considerable money.
Check out thier new website and give it run to see how it performs in your area. It worked great in California. I am anxious to learn how it works around the country, so if you have a good or bad experience, please leave a comment below. Here is the Washington Post article
