While we strive to manage costs wherever possible, we find it necessary to raise our prices as our efforts to improve security, productivity and efficiency continue to be outpaced by costs of technology, shipping, printing, insurance and banking.
As a result, we are increasing our prices for the first time in 3 years. Please find our new rate card, attached, effective for closings taking place November 1, 2020, or later.
The increase has been kept to a minimum; on an average residential purchase transaction the consumers will see about a 9% increase (or 3% per year.)
Because interest rates remain so low, we have raised the refinance rate by only $12.50, reflecting only our increased cost to obtain copies of documents from the counties. Going forward, we will charge for costs (i.e., wire, delivery (FedEx), printing (e-delivery) and e-recording) as we incur them on all transactions, including refinance transactions.
Our continuing goal is to deliver the best possible quality and service as efficiently as possible. This increase will allow us to maintain our proven standards. We wish to take this opportunity to thank you for your business and we look forward to the privilege of being of service to you in the future!
