American Land Title Association Reports Title Insurance Premium Volume Up 8 Percent
press release, American Land Title Association
   

The title insurance industry generated $4.18 billion in title insurance premiums during the second quarter of 2020, according to ALTA’s latest Market Share Analysis. Title premium volume is up 8.0 percent compared with the same period a year ago.

“Despite the pandemic, low interest rates in the second quarter of 2020 has been positive and productive for the land title insurance industry. Title insurance premium volume is dependent on mortgage origination volume, and 45 states showed that second-quarter premiums written increased 8 percent compared with the second quarter of 2019,” said Diane Tomb, ALTA’s chief executive officer. “Although we are not experiencing the near-historic origination volume we saw in the first quarter, the majority of the country is still trending upward.”

Overall, total operating income for the industry was up 8.2 percent and operating expenses were up 8.4 percent, but loss and loss adjustment expenses were down 27 percent.

“We expect residential housing market and refinances—buoyed by low mortgage rates—to remain strong throughout the year,” Tomb said. “The question left outstanding is how the commercial market will rebound. Depending on how the commercial market performs during the rest of the year, 2020 could prove to be one of the strongest years on record.”
