Did you say Discounts?


I somehow feel that most of you are unaware of the various discounts offered to our customers by Benchmark Title so I thought this would be a good venue to go over them for you so you have an opportunity to take advantage of any of them to potentially reduce your clients costs in this ever interesting market we are dealing with today.

Please review them carefully as some of them cannot be combined with others, yet some of them can, so look closely, or as it has been said many times, “Read the fine print”.

Prior Policy Discount

When placing an order for title insurance with Benchmark Title, be sure to ask your seller, or borrower in the case of a refinance transaction, for a copy of their existing title policy, a copy is just fine in the event they do not want to give up the original.
The cost savings for this opportunity is 25% of the premium fee up to a maximum of $100.00. This cannot be combined with other discounts with the exception of the Military Discount.

Military Discount

A 15 % discount on the title premium fee, buyer or seller, for all military personnel, active, reserve, or retired. We truly appreciate our military people and what they give for us. Without them we would not have the freedom we have to be in this business in the first place. This discount can be combined with any other offer we have.

10 Year Anniversary Discount

Orders placed with Benchmark Title on the 10th of the month will receive a 10% discount off the premium fee. There is one other issue with this anniversary program, we will, at random, pick one other day in the month for the same benefit. You can call the first of the month and ask when that second date may be for that month. This offer cannot be combined with any other offer, with the exception of the military discount.

We also have some very favorable re-finance rates available. Do not hesitate to contact any of our offices for a quote. 

We will always strive to exceed our customers expectations !
