You will see a new kind of story this week on Inman — and every week moving forward. We’re expanding our scope of coverage to include mortgage, title, escrow and appraisal issues.
“The title insurance, mortgage, appraisal and escrow field is hugely important to real estate, and we couldn’t be more excited to dive into this area of news for our current and future readers,” says Publisher Brad Inman. “The focus of our coverage will be through the lens of Inman’s traditional approach to the industry: innovation, new business models, technology, and important policy or business shifts.”
We have brought on a specialized writer, Amy Swinderman. Swinderman brings to Inman a decade of experience covering the title insurance, mortgage, escrow, appraisal and settlement service industries. Much of her writing has focused on legal, legislative, regulatory and compliance challenges impacting these industries. Highlights of Amy’s career include covering Congress’ investigation of the title insurance industry and the resulting Government Accountability Office report; RESPA reform; contentious court trials involving the nation’s top title insurance underwriters; and one-on-one interviews with controversial state regulators. She looks forward to expanding Inman’s coverage of these issues and industries.
Look for Swinderman’s articles on Inman starting this week, and email story ideas to her at email@example.com.
We are also looking for regular contributors who work in the mortgage, escrow, title insurance, appraisal and settlement service industries to provide their own tips, opinions and news stories; find out how you can get your name and work in front of Inman’s growing audience by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send you a package that explains how to contribute.
We will also add content to our Connect conferences, our live stream events and webinars, and our profiles. For speaking opportunities, contact email@example.com, and for business matters, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
