A lot of the news surrounding the housing market has concentrated on how quickly existing homes are selling (and at Placer Title Company, we’re closing deals where the house has sold as soon as it has been listed.) But here’s another trend that’s just as hot: new home construction.
To be the expert title and escrow partners our valued customers trust, part of our mission includes making sure we are good industry stewards. That’s why your Placer Title Company team and the leaders of our parent company, Mother Lode Holding Company, have always been actively involved in our industry associations, including the California Land Title Association and the American Land Title Association.
At Placer Title Company, we’re ready for all things fall, even though the temperatures haven’t exactly dipped yet in California. But before we know it, we’ll be welcoming sweater weather, sipping pumpkin-flavored drinks and driving around our gorgeous region to get a glimpse of fall leaves. In a usual year, the first chill of fall usually signals a natural slowdown of the real estate market as kids return to school and families prepare for the holidays.
If 2020 has taught us anything, it's that we can work from anywhere.
That realization is causing a notable shift in where we live and what we’re looking for in the communities we call home. While Placer Title Company is the expert you need for any real estate transaction, our roots are in Placer County and the Sacramento region. The area around our capital city has long been an awesome place to live for plenty of reasons.
As we’ve mentioned before, Placer Title Company is a proud member of the California Land Title Association and the American Land Title Association (ALTA). We firmly believe a strong title industry benefits us, our partners, and our customers. We are proud to say that several of our Placer Title team members, and the leaders of our parent company—Mother Lode Holding Company—lend their expertise to these organizations too.
Happy National Homeownership Month to all of you! This year has certainly been like no other, but we’re very appreciative of all our great customers. Now, more than ever, the Placer Title Company team is here to be the partner you and your buyers/sellers can trust.
As people continue to work remotely and practice social distancing, finding new ways to connect with employees and customers is critical. Placer Title Company is working harder than ever to provide the excellent service you’ve always expected from us. Our mission is to meet the needs of our real estate partners, despite the lack of in-person interaction. We aim to be a trusted resource, not only for navigating the title and real estate industry, but for anything related to your real estate business.
In these unprecedented times, Placer Title Company wants to alert our clients to an alarming trend. We're doing everything we can to protect and inform our customers from wire fraud. However, we’re seeing scammers capitalize on COVID-19 to take advantage of many who are feeling more vulnerable than ever. There is an overwhelming amount of coronavirus-related information being distributed daily, which gives scammers the perfect opportunity to exploit public fears about the virus.
Placer Title Company continues to work hard to ensure California real estate transactions are completed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. We are doing all we can to ensure customer and employee health and safety during this time, and we thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation. However, there is another danger that is still lurking in the world of real estate – yes, we’re talking about wire fraud.
