How we can help your Sellers
When dealing with sellers it is crucial that you check on your client’s Portability as early as possible in the sales transaction. If there are issues and they close without fixing them, savings that could have easily been gotten may be permanently lost. And don’t worry, we know how to fix these things without delaying your closing.
Step 1 - Start using our Portability Checker
Use Portability Pros™ to identify how much Portability your client has accrued and if they could have more
It takes less than a minute and is only $9.99! Use Portability Pros™ as soon as you open a closing file. Portability Pros™ will tell you how much homestead portability the homeowner has accrued and whether or not our system shows that they should have more. A lack of portability can be due to some common errors with county property appraiser valuation systems, or because the homeowner forgot to file for portability when they filed for Homestead. If the report shows room for improvement, simply download the pdf, email it to the Seller, and save a copy in your file to document that you told them.
