Step 5 – Escrow

Once a signed sales contract on your home has been reached, it moves into escrow and all the behind the scenes work begins. Escrow is a neutral third party that holds funds and disperses them to the various parties with, and only with, the proper instructions from all parties. The escrow transactions can be fairly complex, so we will handle all the details for you and keep you informed every step of the way.

  • Buyer’s Inspections
    The buyer will be ordering inspections and we will be there to attend and advise the home inspection contractors.
  • Buyer’s Financing
    We will monitor the Buyer’s loan process and coordinate the lender’s appraisal of the property.
  • Disclosures
    The city of San Francisco requires specific inspections paid for by the seller during a real estate transaction to comply with local law. We will also cover other state and federal disclosure requirements to protect you after the sale.
  • Title Transfer
    We will work with the title company to assure clear and transferable title as well as check all closing statements for accuracy. We will explain the final stages of the actual transfer of title and the
    subsequent delivery of the property to the new Buyers. Following the closing, you will receive a final settlement statement for your records that clearly illustrate all fees paid by you to close the contract.
