Open escrow online with A-List Escrow.
Opening escrow online with A-List Escrow is easy. Fill out the Purchase Order Form or Refinance Order Form.
In the case of a refinance transaction the lender usually opens the escrow. In the case of a home sale a real estate agent usually opens the escrow, or if no realtor is involved because the property is “for sale by owner”, the buyer and seller can open escrow. Land transactions are regularly opened by the buyer or seller. As soon as the parties involved have reached an agreement as to the terms of a sale, an initial earnest money is handed to the escrow holder, along with the purchase agreement. As a rule, in the case of a refinance, no money is deposited until the loan has been approved and the escrow is getting ready to close.
