Stabilize and Standardize in 2016
By: Kimberly Rosenberg, President
Happy New Year! We at Attorneys Title are excited about 2016 and look forward to working with you as you continue to navigate your way through the new closing process. Our goal is to offer assistance when needed and to advocate on your behalf whenever possible. Before we look ahead to 2016, let’s look back at 2015.
As predicted, 2015 was a year of monumental changes. You upgraded your software, trained on the new closing disclosures and prepared yourself in accordance with ALTA’s Best Practices. It wasn’t easy, and it wasn’t without significant expense, but you did it! And you did all of this in a busy year. 2015 was a year of strong residential sales, with sales of existing homes up 7% and new home construction up 13% over the previous year. Another bright spot in the housing market was an increase in housing prices. Nationally, housing prices are close to what they were before the 2008 downturn. The commercial real estate market was also strong, with new apartment construction and industrial development leading the way. All in all, 2015 was a strong year for real estate.
2015 was also a busy year at Attorneys Title. We held 13 free CLE/CPE seminars across the state. We worked hard to try to disseminate information about TRID to attorneys and realtors. We actively participated in the Best Practices Task Force, NCLTA legislative efforts, and RELANC, all in an effort to educate the real estate community about the new changes and to demonstrate to lenders and legislators that consumers are better protected in North Carolina because attorneys are involved in the closing process.
