Buying a New Home?

RosnerKNOW ANYONE BUYING A HOUSE IN LOWER MERION? Just forward them this post to let them know they can save money on title costs.

The biggest myth in the Pennsylvania real estate industry is that you cannot save on title costs. Often, you are referred to a title agent that is affiliated with the real estate company. By using an attorney settlement agent instead, you can save anywhere from 10% to 25% in title costs. Since 2012, Rosner Settlement Services has saved clients over $60,000.00

Real life examples:
$500,000 purchase will cost you a minimum of $3,175.00 with a title agent. Rosner’s fee would be $2,381.25 for the same services.

$750,000 purchase will cost you a minimum of $4,175 with a title agent. Rosner’s fee would be $3,131.25.

If you shop around for mortgage rates and homeowners insurance – do yourself a favor and give Rosner Settlement Services a call for a quote on title. Jeff Rosner is an attorney instead of a title agent and operates under a separate system in PA which gives much more flexibility.

You will save 25% on any purchase over $500,000.00.
