Our team just got back from another great year at the National Settlement Services Summit (NS3). The conference, celebrating its 13th year, was held in San Antonio, TX.

As always, there were insightful sessions on all of the settlement industry’s emerging trends. Here are the three topics that had everyone talking:

  1. Security Cyberattacks have reached a new level in terms of both volume and intricacy. To best protect from an attack, companies should carefully assess practices in four key pillars: hardware, software, procedures, and people.

  2. eClosings Electronic closings (eClosings) are not a question of “if” but of “when.” Now is the time for lenders and title agents to begin preparing for an inevitable shift in technology, processes, and risk.

  3. Market Forecasts The future looks bright as 25-to-30 year olds are expected to create a strong purchase market over the next 5 years.

We look forward to seeing everyone next year!
