First, a little about "escrow". An escrow holder is brought on to assure your property closes on time and the money exchanging part of closing goes smoothly. Escrow holders hold money for "safe-keeping" in transactions between a buyer and seller. PayPal is a simple way to think of an escrow company.

The escrow holder makes sure that the terms and conditions of the agreement between the seller and buyer are performed prior to the sale being finished.

The records the escrow holder may collect include:

  • 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
  • Loan documents
  • Tax statements

You're ready to close when every step is done in escrow process. All expenses like title insurance, inspections and real estate commissions are paid. The home's title is given to you and title insurance begins per the steps of your particular escrow process.

Mortgage Escrow Account

A Mortgage Escrow Account is started to pay rolling expenses while there is a loan on the house. Escrow Accounts are contributed to monthly by the home buyer (who is now the homeowner), but there is also a lump sum that goes into the account at closing.

This is a quick run-down of the escrow process. Your individual methods will be unique based on your lender and your escrow holder.
