[-] FOR COOS AND VENDOR MANAGERS - Kara Foster-Morales/OH (8 replies)

HelloOOOOooOO!

 

I would love to get some insight from Vendor Managers and Chief Operations Officers on this one. Feel free to post anonymously, if you wish, much like I do. Feel free to chime in:

 

 

I speak as both a ground searcher, an in-house examiner, and Vendor Manager, who had been laid off. A mother. A daughter. A 5th generation US-Tax Payer.

 

It is no secret that us ground searchers are being phased out (or in danger of) companies outsourcing to offshore entities. Sure, they can be cheap. They can even be "RIDONCULOUSLY" cheap, but their quality mostly mediocre, at best. Due to changes in the industry, most are driving the online price down…Current Owners are going for mere dollars…other companies offshore charge even less in exchange for things such as TitlePoint access…

 

All while "boots on the ground" professionals like us, suffer: aside from rising interest rates, our work is drying up. Many have gone out of business, been forced to retire, or are in danger of closing.

 

Those that work in house…are being laid off by the hundreds…thousands even.

Do not believe me? Go on LinkedIn…..Do some googling…..WESTCOR: Lay offs. FNAS: Lay offs. Zillow: Lay offs. Rocket Mortgage: Lay offs.

 

Rising interest rates are one thing, selling us out to foreign countries, is another. I have atoned for my sins, it is why I am here, after all: to help those in need.

While the offshore companies drive the price down….

 

We are driving it up. We are tired of doing what some offshore worker who does not speak English could not complete. We are tired of "gap searches" or updating their work. We are tired of being sent to document retrievals for a measly deed or mortgage your pathetic offshore worker company could not do. If we do those, we are going to charge for it, and we should…A LOT! Can you blame us?

 

Put yourself in our shoes. An offshore company does not pay American Taxes. An offshore company does not care about having to pay inflated mortgage rates, or increased closing costs. An offshore company does not care about whether they have to choose between making your car payment or putting food on the table as a single mom of two kids. An offshore company does not care about rising rent prices here in the USA.

 

Those of us on the ground, in the courthouses, in the Register of Deeds…are not sad…we are INSANELY ANGRY.

 


Our time is now.

 

It is our time, it is our gas, our expertise, our children's dinners, our rents and mortgages, at stake.

 

COOs and Vendor Managers, what are your thoughts? How do you feel??

 

Do you even care???

 

Maybe you do…

 

Maybe you don't…but one day...you too may be laid off…your company may be bought out….and you too may have to have that worry…. just like us.

 

XOXO
