Real Estate Closings, Stress-free

Real estate closings are an essential—and often stressful—part of achieving the American Dream. The fees, the disbursement of funds, and the lengthy list of documents to sign can be complicated. One mistake or overlooked document can delay or even cancel the entire transaction.

What will it all cost the buyer(s) and seller(s)? What are all the fees, taxes, and other expenses and what do they mean? Will the multiple parties involved fulfill their obligations correctly and on time?

The key is to work with a closing advisor or real estate settlement agent who can oversee the entire process and educate you about what to expect.

Understanding Real Estate Closings

By the time the closing date arrives, most of the work has been done. That one sheet of paper that lists the many payments, taxes, and fees represents many hours of work behind the scenes.

Involve Cornerstone early in the process as your title and escrow company, and we can work with everyone involved—buyers, sellers, lenders, brokers, agents, and attorneys—to help make closing go smoothly.

Most importantly, we can answer questions and help eliminate surprises. We can explain fees and find experts (such as a real estate attorney). We can advise on taxes (mortgage, transfer taxes, real estate taxes, mansion taxes in New York). As your real estate settlement agent, we manage your real estate escrow account at closing and help ensure that every payment is disbursed correctly. Tell us the price and area of a potential residential or commercial property, and we can provide a comprehensive estimate of the closing costs.

In short, we can provide or manage every aspect of closing services, including title insurance to protect buyers and lenders.

Post-Sale Title and Closing Services

Closing services don’t necessarily end the process. Our title settlement services take care of financial disbursements, filings, recordings and everything involved in finalizing the transaction. And, as a provider of title insurance, we remain an ongoing resource to answer questions and protect buyers and lenders if any disputes or issues arise in the future.
