Some Things Are Better in Bulk

The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago About Author: Tom Huddleston Previous: How Financially Literate Are Today’s Consumers? Next: Homeowners Experience Largest Property Tax Hike in Four Years Editor’s note: This article appears in the April 2021 edition of DS News, available here.  Real estate investors will often buy or sell several properties at once, and whether that transaction is numerous single-family homes or a number of hotel properties, having one company to handle the entirety of the title work can streamline the process for all involved, from real estate agents to mortgage originators. Although many in the real estate industry may think of the work of a title company as focused on a single property at a time, bulk transactions are a niche market that’s important not to overlook. When investors need to move large portfolios of property, a single point of contact and single close can ease the process, particularly if the properties span numerous states. When partnering with title companies, those working with real estate investors should seek out companies experienced with and capable of closing bulk title transactions across the country. What is a Bulk Title Transaction? Simply put, a bulk title transaction is just what it sounds like: the sale or purchase of a number of properties, grouped together into one bulk transaction that delivers title work for each property, regardless of location. These can be found in both commercial and residential properties, and can range from a handful of properties to as many as 500. Often, bulk transactions are across multiple states which, given state law differences, complicates closing, insurance coverage and pricing. The process is further complicated by differences in recording costs and taxes at the city/county level.  By doing the transactions in bulk, investors get several benefits, including having a single point of contact as well as the potential for a single closing. By using one title company, the transaction can be streamlined, saving time and money by consolidating title work by jurisdiction and using a single point of contact to keep communication flowing openly and without the confusion of involving multiple parties.  Often these transactions may involve default situations, not only making quality title research even more critical, but also involving servicers that will benefit from consolidating the transactions into a single closing. Some investors or servicers may even engage a title company to complete title research without a specific transaction in mind to gather pertinent data on a particular portfolio of properties. Partnering With the Right Title Company Choosing a title company to partner with will involve some research for anyone working in the real estate industry. There are many factors to consider to ensure the customer is getting the best fit for their needs. When working with investors who will move several properties at once, it’s important to consider a title company that can handle such transactions and the various factors that will affect the transactions, as well as one that will best ensure customer satisfaction. First, consider whether you’re working with a title agent that can choose the best products from multiple underwriters or from a direct title underwriter that offers just their company’s product. Next, how experienced is the company with bulk transactions? Do they have a dedicated group to focus on the special needs of these assets? Bulk transactions require special skills and knowledge to execute well. Also consider how large the company is: too small and they might not be able to handle the needs of a bulk transaction, but too large a company may get bogged down in bureaucratic hurdles that lengthen the process. Be sure to assess a company’s state coverage capabilities. If they only work in New England, for instance, but a client has properties across the U.S., you’ll need to look elsewhere. The next aspect to consider is a bit trickier to pinpoint, but both research and asking the right questions will help you discover if a certain title company has what you need. Technology gets a lot of attention and has become something of an industry buzzword, but it is particularly important for bulk title transactions. When handling multiple properties with lots of documentation, it’s critical that the title company has the technology in place to not only handle such large quantities of documents, but also to streamline that information into usable data and create consolidated closing statements. Technology that is capable of this kind of streamlining frequently results in lower costs to the client and requires less time to close.  Another aspect to consider in terms of technology is how that tech relates to the customer experience. Can clients access and track their transactions? Do clients receive milestone notifications? How is communication handled? Don’t forget the importance of customer service in any transaction—even large ones such as these.  Having one title company to handle multiple assets can make a significant difference for investors, particularly if the properties span numerous states. Although different jurisdictions mean different rules for each title, companies capable of handling bulk title transactions can make this a smooth process for investors with technology that consolidates closing statements and allows for monitoring of transactions’ progress. With the right title partner, investors can have bulk transactions transferred as quickly and efficiently as possible; these are exceptional transactions and it’s critical to have a partner that treats them as such. By finding the right title company to work with, those in the real estate industry can save time and ensure better communication for their clients.  Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Some Things Are Better in Bulk Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 1 day ago  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 1 day ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 1 day ago Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 1 day agolast_img read more

Grits: Well Lawdy, Lawdy

first_img By The Penny Hoarder Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day They would do anything to keep us talking. They would have taken us all the way to the Pacific Ocean if we’d wanted to go that far. We got off in Las Vegas.We hitched rides with folks all over the country. The nicest kind of folks, usually.Once, though, a couple of us were hitching a ride over the Beartooth Mountains to Red Lodge, Montana. We caught a ride going over with a crusty, old man who slammed on brakes and brought his car to a complete stop at every turn of every switchback. It took us so long to get across the mountains that it was time to go back when we got there.Now, as GRITS, we were kind if pa’ticlar who we rode with – wouldn’t ride with just anybody. But on this late afternoon, pa’ticlar went right out the window with “Just Married” scrawled across it.The young groom, evidently, anxious to get on with the honeymoon, zoomed around and skidded around those rugged mountains at such great speed that we, the GRITS, fell to the floorboard in loud, persistent “Lawdy, Lawdy.”Other than that brush with eternity, the only other risky was ride with Bonnie and Clyde.Three of us GRITS found ourselves in a rather precarious situation. We had hitched over to Virginia City, Montana, and the weather had suddenly turned dark and cold, bringing snow flurries off and on. There were no cars on the road to hitch so one of us stood, hopefully, holding our sign while the other two took refuge in the ditch.I heard the car brake and jumped from the ditch to see an old model white Cadillac on its nose. We looked at each other, sighed and climbed in.The man had slicked-back hair, a mustache and horn-rimmed glasses. He was wearing a dark polyester suit with a red tie. She had on a leopard-skin coat, fake for sure, long, bleached-blond hair and was smoking a cigarette in a long holder.They asked a lot of questions and we answered in syrupy-Southern drawls that they didn’t seem to notice.They were kidnappers. They would ask for ransom. We would die.We communicated with each other with our eyes and hand signals. We knew what had to be done. We had to bail.As we approached the park, there was a crossroads. That’s when we’d make a break for it. Clyde pulled the car to a jerky stop and just as he did, we bolted. Two of us out one door and one out the other. Running like scared rabbits, leaving the car doors wide open behind us.We heard them yelling for us to come back but we kept running, never looking back.The next day, we heard that a movie company was shooting a film segment at West Yellowstone. It was about gangsters back during the 1940s. Maybe we should have hung around long enough to get autographs.Jaine Treadwell is features editor at The Messenger.

From a size six to a nine in just a few months time.Back in those days, the world wasn’t nearly as small as it is today. As Americans, we spoke the same language but each region had its dialect that was as foreign to one as it was to the other. However, the slow, Southern drawl kind of “took the cake,” so to speak. Upon hearing it, those who didn’t fall over with belly laughs found the “drawl” downright amusing.But Southerners aren’t as dumb as folks from the other regions think we are. So, we, the YP girls, used the “drawl” to our advantage. Sponsored Content Published 2:23 am Sunday, November 30, 2008 At Yellowstone, we had two modes of transportation. “Pat and Bob” or hitching a ride.Most of the kids who worked at the park would hitch rides by standing on the roadside with signs that read: “YP Employees.” But not the GRITS (Girls Raised In The South). Our signs read: “Alabama Girls, Going Your Way.”Why, folks would stand their cars on their noses just to give us a ride.And, we’d lay it on thick. The y’alls, sho-nuffs, I’ll swanees and hush yo’mouths. We’d throw in a few Lawdies, have mercies, Glory-bes and honey chil’s and we’d have them eating out of our hands. Actually, eating at their expense. Book Nook to reopen Back in the early 1960s, Yellowstone National Park was as foreign to a gal from South Alabama as Israel is to young folks from the same region these days.Travels had taken me to Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana and Georgia, but not Atlanta. So when I arrived at the nation’s oldest national park, I was, as my granny used to say, like a big-eyed gal at the fair.The park was kind of like a kibbutz in that you worked long and hard for a bed and a bite and, literally, a jingle in your pocket. Fifty dollars a month might not seem like a lot but it wasn’t the money that made me leave the comforts of home for the wilds of the West, it was the opportunity to broaden my horizons.

No time for tears

first_img Circuit Judge Thomas Head has worked with Peacock at the Pike County Courthouse for 24 years and six years prior to that at the DA’s office.“Brenda Peacock is probably the single most dedicated public servant that I know,” Head said. “She makes us all proud because she sets the standard – sets the bar – for all elected officials. She will be missed and she cannot be replaced. And those are not just words. They are the truth.”Jamie Scarbrough has been in the circuit clerk’s office for 15 years and will step into Peacock’s shoes.“I’m confident that I can do the job but the hardest thing – the thing that scares me the most – is trying to fill the shoes of someone who is loved by everybody,” Scarbrough said. “Brenda is such an exceptional woman. She is not the average politician. She doesn’t put on airs. She’s just who she is and that’s what makes her so exceptional.” Brenda Peacock fought back tears at her retirement celebration on Friday afternoon, as did the hundreds of well-wishers who came to the Pike County Courthouse to honor her. Joyous moments marked the event, as well, including a dousing with “water” from a deputy in the clerk’s office. (Photo/Jaine Treadwell)Brenda Peacock said she wouldn’t cry when she stepped down as Pike County’s circuit clerk on Friday. She almost didn’t.Peacock held back tears as she expressed appreciation to the “girls” in the circuit clerk’s office who “have made me look better than I am.”“I will be eternally grateful to my ‘sisters,’” Peacock said. “And to all of the people at the Courthouse.

She’s is a stone in the circuit clerk’s office.”Lt. Bob Williamson of the Pike County Sheriff’s Department echoed Blair’s sentiments about Peacock.“Back when we had to take warrants to Brenda’s house on Saturday mornings for her to sign, she was always smiling and she wouldn’t let us leave without giving us a jar of blueberry jelly,” Williamson said. “That’s just the kind of person she is.”Sonny Schrieber, an investigator with the Troy Police Department, said simply that Peacock is a “doll.”“Brenda is always smiling,” he said. “It doesn’t matter when she’s called out, Saturday, Sunday or in the middle of the night. She is always willing to do what has to be done. And she is a true advocate for victims. There’s nothing bad that can be said about Brenda Peacock. She’s a true friend and I hate to see her go.”Peacock has been a “big sister” to Pike County Sheriff Russell Thomas and serving with her has been “an honor and privilege,” he said.“I’ve learned a lot about the law from her but there are two things that I especially admire about Brenda,” Thomas said. “First, it’s her love of family. She always puts her family first and then it’s her desire to do the best job possible. Brenda exemplifies what public service is all about. When you needed her, she was always accessible. She’s fair and honest. She’s one of a kind and she will truly be missed.”Scarbrough will be sworn in as Circuit Clerk at 8:30 a.m. Monday.
