FAQs


What makes Bay2Ocean different?
We are a low cost, fast service agency born for the Florida Keys. Whether you are local or here for pleasure in the Winter we understand your lifestyle and make the closing process easy for you.


What do you mean by easy for me?
A large number of our clients purchase second homes. This is why we offer remote closing services anywhere in the United States at no extra cost. We come to you at a time and location that is convenient for you, not when our doors say we are open.


I don't see an address for your office?
Our headquarters is in Delray Beach; we have a full time employee in Tavernier that will personally handle your closing; his family ties to Monroe County go back three generations. By not having a second office we keep our overhead low and pass the savings on to you.


Great, I love saving money, how much will my closing cost?
Several costs will differ depending on your real estate contract and property chosen. To estimate your title charges however, simply request a free quote here. Be sure to call us as well to check our current specials.


I am going to be in town for my closing; where will we complete my signing?
Most of our clients find it convenient to close at their real estate agent's office where we will bring all of the necessary paperwork. We also have a conference room available near mile marker 86. Or, we can complete your closing over lunch or dinner while dining at any of the fabulous restaurants nearby.


Why do I need title insurance and why is it so important?
Title insurance protects what for many is their largest single asset. Our friends at ALTA have created a website, www.homeclosing101.org which will supply you with all of the pertinent information you need.


Wow, that's a great website, are you an ALTA member?
Yes, proudly for almost a decade now.


What type of funds can I use at closing?
We accept cashier's checks and official bank checks drawn on U.S. funds as well as foreign and domestic wires.


So no cash?
This can be accomodated on special occasions. Please call our office to make arrangements.
