Title Examiners who are practiced in their profession and carry more than 10 years of experience make up a little over a half of Title Examiners. Pay fluctuates from $30K to $61K per year, but expected earnings average $44K per year. The most important factor affecting compensation for this group is residence, followed by years of experience and the particular employer. Most Title Examiners are fairly content with their jobs, and work satisfaction falls in line with the national average. Nearly one in four of professionals in this line of work do not receive benefits; however, a fair number report medical coverage and a majority claim dental coverage as well. Most Title Examiners survey respondents are women (72 percent). The information for this rundown comes from respondents who completed PayScale's salary questionnaire.

Pay by Experience Level for Title Examiner

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


For Title Examiners, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Workers in their first five years can expect to earn $35K, but people who have been around for five to 10 years earn a noticeably bigger sum of $41K. After working for 10 to 20 years, Title Examiners make a median salary of $44K. In the end, more experience does seem to mean larger paychecks; seasoned Title Examiners with more than 20 years of experience earn a predictably higher median salary of $50K.
