Boring Title: John Downs From The Downs Group

Title insurance is boring, but Allied Title & Escrow is here to decode the jargon and make it (somewhat) more interesting. This biweekly feature will explore the mundane (but very necessary!) world of title insurance while sharing interesting stories of two friends’ entrepreneurial careers.

For this week’s edition of Boring Title, we interviewed John Downs of The Downs Group at Vellum Mortgage. John talks about the new Fannie & Freddie “adverse market” fee, and how that will affect refinances going forward.
