Landsea Homes, No. 47 on the 2022 Builder 100, launched Landsea Title, which will conduct core title services, issue title commitments, and title policies in the builder’s Arizona, Florida, and Texas markets as an agent for First American Title Co.

“The launch of Landsea Title has long been in the works to complement our existing financial operations and offer our home buyers valuable title services,” Mike Forsum, president and chief operating officer of Landsea Homes, said in a prepared statement. “Having our own title company allows us to ensure the highest level of service and maximize efficiencies throughout the home buying experience by controlling the quality and timing of the title and closing process. Coupled with Landsea Mortgage, we now offer home buyers comprehensive financial services directly with Landsea Homes.”

First American Title is a national underwriter with a specialized home builder services division consisting of staff and offices with experience and capabilities to service Landsea Homes’ existing and growing footprint.

“Working with First American Title offers Landsea Homes consistency in processes and procedures, methods to track and improve customer satisfaction, industry-leading technologies, and expertise in licensure and compliance across all markets,” added Forsum.

The launch of Landsea Title complements the builder’s launch of Landsea Mortgage powered by NFM Lending in July 2022. Landsea Mortgage provides customers a streamlined and full-service loan process. The Landsea Mortgage team provides guidance during the new home financing process and works with builder’s sales and construction team to help coordinate the process from pre-qualification to closing.

Newport Beach, California-based Landsea Homes has developed homes and communities in New York, Boston, New Jersey, Arizona, Florida, Texas, and California.
