Escrow and Closing Costs
When you purchase a home, there will be closing costs which include fees for processing, title insurance, closing, title search, mortgage taxes, appraisals, and more. Within closing costs, there are third-party fees that come from companies that don’t work for mortgage lenders yet provide essential services like escrow.
Escrow is when an impartial third party holds on to funds and distributes them accordingly to process a transaction. This fund, also known as earnest money, is a form of good faith that the buyer will hold for the seller if they breech the contract. Please consult an attorney if you have a question.
Buying a home is one of the biggest financial investments you will ever make. A home warranty protects you, the buyer, (for the first year) from damages to certain mechanical and appliance systems in the home. We know what to look out for and how to negotiate this into the deal for our buyers.
