    Escrow

    Once a contract is ratified, we will manage the escrow process, complete paperwork, and make sure all contingencies are removed in a timely fashion to ensure a successful close of escrow.

What is escrow?

Escrow is a third party that handles the details of a transaction from the time a contract is ratified until title and deed are transferred to the buyer. Escrow handles temporary deposits and transfers of funds and documents until all terms of the contract are fulfilled. Length of an escrow is written into the terms of the contract and average between 30 and 45 days.

Are there costs involved in selling a home?

Each home is different and costs will vary, but those thinking of selling must consider several common costs in selling a property. These include possible staging/painting/small repair fees to prep the home for selling, real estate commission that is not fixed by law and is generally written into the Listing Agreement negotiated by the seller and the seller’s agent, and any closing costs or expenses. Closing costs vary depending on each contract but can include items such as inspections, transfer taxes, recording fees, notary fees, tax pro-rations, among others.
