I'm frequently asked, "how much do part-time loan signing agents and full-time signing agents make on a monthly basis?"
We all know that becoming a loan signing agent is one of the best side-hustles. Start part-time with no experience, work your own hours, and make great money! But how much can you make per month as a part-time loan signing agent? And if you wanted to go full-time, what is your income potential? This blog will answer those questions for you.
The income numbers vary significantly depending on how you get your loan signing appointments. I have another blog that explains the difference but loan signing agents that primarily get loan signings fed to them automatically through loan signing services are paid between $75 and $125 per appointment.
While signing agents that primarily get loan signing appointments directly from escrow offices get paid between $125 and $200 per appointment.
Read my blog on the differences between the two ways of getting business.
But to understand the income potential of being a loan signing agent, let’s assume that the average fee to be a loan signing agent is $100 if you get business from loan signing services and $150 if you get business directly from escrow offices.
In my opinion, a part-time signing agent can do five signings a week working between 10 and 15 hours a week including the appointment and driving time. At $100 a file, that is $500 a week or roughly $2200 a month.
Now keep in mind, we are using the lower end of the fee scale in this example. If you are getting direct business from escrow offices, you would take home $50 more per appointment, or approximately an extra $1,000 more a month. So a signing agent that gets business directly from escrow offices would make about $3250 dollars a month working ten to fifteen hours a week.
Now, Let's talk about the income of a full-time notary signing agent. We’ll continue to use the $100 fee per file in our calculation. In my opinion, a full-time notary signing agent does no less than fifteen signings per week working roughly 40 to 45 hours a week including appointment and drive time.
Completing fifteen signings a week at $100 per file is roughly $1500 a week or roughly $6500 a month or $78,000 a year.
If you a signing agent that gets direct business, you would make an additional $50 per file which would add $39,000 more a year for the exact same work or more specifically you would $117,000 a year.
