What is Escrow?

 Great Scott Properties LLC can walk you through closing - 3362131617
Escrow: A neutral, third party (known as the escrow holder or the escrow agent) is hired to assure your property closes on time and the closing process goes smoothly. A place is said to be in escrow when in the closing transaction, payment is secured by a third party on behalf of two parties when the exchange of money takes place. An everyday way to think of what an escrow company does is to think of how you might use PayPal for Internet purchases.

Clearing the final hurdles like obtaining funds, completing forms, getting the documents for loans and liens, and assuring you get a spotless title to the house in preparation of your purchase gets finalized are all part of the job of the escrow company.

These are the legal forms that escrow companies usually compile:

  • Loan documents
  • Tax statements
  • Fire and other insurance policies
  • Title insurance policies
  • Terms of sale and any seller-assisted financing
  • Requests for payment for various services to be paid out of escrow funds

Closing on the property takes place when all of the procedures of the escrow are complete. All expenses like title insurance, inspections and real estate commissions are paid. The home's title gets transferred to you and title insurance begins per the policies of your particular escrow process.

At the close of escrow, in an acceptable form to the escrow. I'll keep you updated on what comes next.
