A One-Stop Solution for Shopping Title Insurance and Closing Settlement Services in Colorado

How much can I save?

The following illustrates the range of certain title insurance rates and closing fees, along with the differences/ savings for such services. Understand, the actual costs for your particular transaction can only be determined by running a comparison, which is based on your property's past real estate transactions (i.e., prior sales, loans and refinances)

HOW MUCH DOES AN OWNER'S TITLE INSURANCE POLICY COST?

When selling or buying a home the purchase of an Owner's Title Insurance Policy*** is common; and who pays for the Owner's Policy is a negotiated real estate contract item between the buyer and seller. With that said, a buyer or seller could be responsible for paying for the Owner's Policy. The illustration below shines a light on the cost differences that exist on various sale prices in the Denver Metro Area** among 12 licensed and actively issuing title insurance companies/ underwriters.

The cost of an Owner's Policy is based on the sales price. However, it is not that simple, each title insurance company/ underwriter offers their own unique discount programs that are based on when the last Owner's Policy and/or Loan Policy was issued. For example, if the home was purchased or refinanced 5 years ago, the cost for an Owner's Policy from one company might not qualify for a discount while another title insurance company/ underwriter may offer a discount.

By shopping and comparing cost you could find a difference/savings of as little as $100; or, up to $2,700 and more, depending on your specific real estate transaction.
