Notary loan signing agents frequently ask me for tips about this simple skill that can totally revamp the way they receive business.
Packaging loan documents is hands-down the best way to get repeat loan signing business from an escrow officer.
Because packaging is technically the escrow officer's job, NOT the notary loan signing agent's job. And it is for this specific reason that so many signing agents simply don't do it.
But here's the thing...
If a loan signing agent can do something that takes a task off the escrow officer's plate, it will separate him or her from other notary loan signing agents in an exceptional way.
Serving Your Clients Better=More Business For You
Think about it from the escrow officer's point of view: a notary loan signing agent who knows how to package loan documents is a valuable, time-saving asset... it only makes sense to choose that agent for future loan signing appointments again and again.
And remember, loan signing jobs that come directly from escrow officers (and not signing services) typically pay $150-$200 per hour-long appointment.
So, What Does It Mean to 'Package' Loan Documents?
And what makes it such a big deal?
These are great questions.
Packaging is the act of breaking down a set of loan documents after they have been signed by the borrower(s), taking copies of the necessary pages therein, and creating separate piles (or 'packages') for the title company, the escrow company, and the bank, according to what they need for their respective files.
Or, put simply, it means making sure that the proper documents get to where they need to go in order for the loan to fund on time.
Like I mentioned above, this needs to happen after each and every loan signing appointment anyway... whether it is completed by the escrow officer or the notary loan signing agent doesn't matter.
However, what makes packaging so valuable (and what can also make it tough to learn) is the fact that it takes precious time and requires you to have a basic understanding of the mortgage transaction process.
Packaging Loan Documents Can Help You Get Business
If a Notary Loan Signing Agent is Having Trouble Getting Clients at a Local Title Company or Escrow Officer, it's Likely Because He or She Doesn't Know How to Package Loan Documents
