The escrow process can be very exciting time for both a homebuyer and seller, since it means the real estate deal is almost over. It can also be stressful to make sure all deadlines are met, and both sides are happy. To help ease the escrow process and make it as simple as possible, keep these tips in mind.
- Be responsible. It is important to keep in mind that escrow is a process, and it will not happen all in one day. Stay up to date with everything going on during the process so that you do not miss any deadlines that can cause the process to fall through. Also, make sure to ask any questions so that you clearly understand all parts of the process.
- Hire the right professional. Keep in mind that an escrow officer can only answer questions that pertain to the escrow process, not about any other aspects of the sale, such as mortgage rates or home inspections. If you have any questions that do not pertain to the escrow process, make sure to ask your real estate agent.
- Follow instructions. If you do not correctly follow all of the instructions given by your escrow officer, it can slow down the process, and even cause the escrow to fall though. If you have any special needs or requests about your escrow, make sure to request them well in advance, so your officer can meet your needs.
