We sit down with Lucie McGuire from Arrow Title Services based out of Stuart, Florida. Lucie is the Business Development Officer for Arrow Title and also runs her own Travel YouTube Channel! When it comes to selling properties, the transfer of title and the closing process is one of THE most important elements of a deal — and it’s important as a Real Estate agent or client that you understand the process. During this Episode, Lucie breaks down why Title Insurance is so important and the steps a Title company takes to insure that a transfer of title is clear. While you may not need to understand EVERY single element to a closing — it’s important to understand what’s going on at the closing table!
