As soon as your offer is accepted, we will open escrow and we are rolling! The term “escrow” refers to the period from the day your offer is accepted until the close of escrow date, which is when title (or ownership) of the property transfers to you. The escrow period, usually 21-30 days, is determined by the terms of your purchase contract. During escrow, we work with the escrow company, seller’s agent, lender, insurance company, inspectors, appraisers, and more. This is the countdown until you are handed the keys and can move in to your new home!
