Announcements

Great news! The latest release of Stewart Rate Calculator was deployed on August 16, 2019. This release includes enhancements that make generating estimates faster and easier using less keystrokes then ever before.

Some features you’ll notice in Stewart Rate Calculator include:

  • To better describe this estimate type, the Loan Estimate has been renamed to Title & Escrow Fee Estimate and the layout has been updated to mimic the streamlined, modern look and feel of the existing Net Sheets.
  • Additionally, a new Sales/Purchase with Cash transaction type has been added; selecting this option changes the title service fees quoted on screen.
  • To make entering Property Information, particularly on a mobile device easier — you can now type partial information such as CityCountyState or Zip Code to display a list of suggested matches to select from.
  • For a more precise estimate, additional options have been added to easily change the allocation of fees, select different settlement offices and to add or subtract endorsements.

Please note: When you create the PDF, you may notice a blank page at the end of the document. Our TBS team is working to resolve this as soon as possible.

Lastly, you asked and we listened…we understand how important it is to see as much information in one document as possible, so we’ve modernized the look and feel of the PDF document generated when an estimate is submitted. Now, in most cases, estimate information displays on a single PDF page.

For a peek at what's new, check out this New Features video. Be sure to watch to the end for a quick time-saving tip if you frequently access Stewart Rate Calculator using your iPhone!

Over the past several months, you may have been introduced to Stewart Now (both the mobile app and the website). You may be curious about what each calculator does and where they obtain their data. Each calculator uses the same single source of data, and this latest release of Stewart Rate Calculator will bring us one step closer to our end goal of aligning all rate calculators with the same response, no matter which calculator you use.

You'll find Stewart Rate Calculator's new Net Sheet features in the tools below:

  • Stewart’s Microsites: Your direct operations websites will be automatically updated. You’ll find the new tools at the same place - under Tools and Resources > Calculators > Seller Net Sheet (or Buyer Cost Sheet).

  • Stewart Rate Calculator: StewartRateCalculator.com.

  • Stewart Now Website: When you choose an Absolute Net Sheet from within the Stewart Now Website, you will now experience the new Buyer's/Seller's Net Sheet from Stewart Rate Calculator.

  • Stewart Now Mobile App: Be on the lookout for a new version coming soon.

You may be familiar with other Stewart calculators and are curious about what each calculator does and where they obtain their rate information. Some of these calculators will be enhanced while others will be retired. In the future, all calculators will use the same single source of data, and this latest release of Stewart Rate Calculator brings us one step closer to our end goal of aligning all rate calculators with the same response, no matter which you use.

You'll find Stewart Rate Calculator's new Net Sheet features in the tools below:

  • Stewart Rate Calculator: StewartRateCalculator.com.

  • Your Agency website: You may be impacted in one of two ways:

    • If you have placed a Stewart Rate Calculator link on your website, there’s nothing for you to do! The new calculator will update automatically. As a Stewart Trusted Provider™, we'll also personalize the results with your logo and the Stewart Trusted Provider logo.
    • If you have the older Net Sheet links on your site, we’ll contact you soon about updating the links.
  • Stewart’s Websites: When visiting www.Stewart.com, you have the ability to calculate title premium. Even though this tool doesn’t provide Net Sheet capabilities, it will also benefit from the recent enhancements.
