What Is Escrow?Most people know escrow has something to do with real estate transactions but don't know much beyond that. Essentially, escrow refers to a legal arrangement where a third party temporarily holds money or property until specific conditions of a transaction or agreement are met. In a real estate transaction such as the purchase of a home, the escrow process acts as a safeguard for homebuyers and sellers, ensuring money has not exchanged hands until the terms of the transaction have been satisfied.
What Is An Escrow Account?Homebuyers are generally required to put down a good faith deposit in a real estate transaction. By putting down this deposit, purchasers demonstrate their commitment to buying the home. Should the buyer break contract, the seller is usually entitled to keep the good faith deposit for their troubles. If the home purchase is successful, the deposit will be applied toward the buyer's down payment. Escrow accounts are set up to hold such deposits for the protection of the buyer and the seller. Until the transaction is closed, the good faith deposit will sit securely in an escrow account. Once the transaction has been completed, the cash is generally applied toward the homebuyer's down payment.
What Are Escrow Fees?Escrow fees are paid to your title and escrow company or real estate attorney to set up your good faith deposit. Typically, escrow fees include paperwork, distribution of funds, and other fees related to the real estate transaction. Our experienced title closing agents can provide you with a reliable and competitive estimate of your closing costs!
