Executives from Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc., recently attended the Greater Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce's annual Citrus Festival in an effort to commemorate the community's heritage and provide an avenue for businesses to support community events.
Early residents of the Palm Harbor area originally established the community as one renowned for fishing, cattle, farming and citrus. Today, the Greater Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce has instituted the Annual Palm Harbor Citrus Festival to commemorate that culture. Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. (NTC), a leading research and document-processing provider for the mortgage and financial industry, has participated in the Palm Harbor Citrus Festival for the past two years, and will continue to support this event as part of their community-focused initiatives. NTC has many employees who regularly volunteer time to the community, and this event was yet another opportunity for NTC to extend its commitment to bettering the community in which its employees live and work.
Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. employees volunteered a full day's work and resources to build a home for a low-income family. Efforts on the part of organizations such as NTC have contributed to a decrease in the number of homeless in the State of Florida.
Though most residents are unaware, Florida currently has the third largest homeless community in the nation, totaling some 50,000 individuals and families, and constituting 6% of the state's population. Community members have decided to take a stand and change conditions in this arena by supporting organizations such as Habitat for Humanity. As a result of these efforts, Florida has seen the largest decrease in homelessness in the country since 2012, by helping 8,000 people to get their own homes. Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. (NTC), a leading research and document-processing provider for the mortgage and financial industry, is one community member that decided to get involved with the initiative to decrease the number of people living on Florida streets. In May, several staff members of NTC volunteered a full day's work to build a home for a family that would not have been able to afford the home otherwise.
Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. has responded to calls for action with regard to title defects by making property reports readily accessible with online ordering. Title defects have become a major cause for concern within the real estate market in recent years, which some feel cause wrongful foreclosures and others feel they contribute to stagnation of what would otherwise be a smooth transition of assets within the secondary market. According to Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. (NTC) executives, property records hold the key to ensuring a clear title conveyance and reducing the risk of buyback or inability to foreclose.
NTC, a leading research and document-processing provider for the mortgage and financial industry, has taken steps to make the process of securing property reports simple—the company recently launched an updated website, making property reports available online.
