Even though 2020 will be remembered most for the unprecedented economic and social challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, our remarkable financial performance tells a story that our joint venture model is on the leading edge of a rapidly changing title industry. - Stephen Routh, CEO
BELLEVUE, Wash. (PRWEB) February 04, 2021
NexTitle, a leading joint venture title and escrow company in the western United States, today announced record results for its joint venture title and escrow operations for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.
Fourth quarter and full year 2020 revenues from its joint venture title and escrow operations each increased 59%, compared to the prior year quarter and fiscal year. Full year 2020 revenue set all-time records in all of its local market centers. While fourth quarter revenue slipped 6% compared to third quarter as a result of typical seasonality, that revenue decrease was substantially less than the same period in 2019 indicating continued strong growth.
Net income from joint venture operations showed record gains as well, increasing 217% over the prior year quarter and more than doubling for the full year 2020 with an annual increase of 125%. Local title and escrow market centers averaged nearly $500,000 each in net income in 2020 resulting in record distributions to NexTitle’s Realtor partners.
“2020 was a memorable year,” said Stephen Routh, CEO of NexTitle. “Even though 2020 will be remembered most for the unprecedented economic and social challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, our remarkable financial performance tells a story that our joint venture model is on the leading edge of a rapidly changing title industry. Being able to distribute hundreds of thousands of dollars from profitable RESPA-compliant joint ventures to our Realtor partners is a win for everyone. We’re excited to extend this model into other markets with new venture partners in 2021.”
