Escrow Agency service, Title insurance ,Taxes and Notary fees are not included in these costs. But Closing coordinator will provide you an estimate closing cost for a purchase of a property. We highly recommend that Both parties of the purchase have to hire their Closing Agency
The parties of the purchaser, buyer and seller, have to hire escrow agency services, this agency is an impartial third party and only receive the resources of the purchase agreed between the seller and buyer in the offer contract and the escrow agreement, basically they put the rules and conditions about the purchase, dates, action, payments and penalties in case of non-compliance with the conditions agreed.
The Escrow will receive in its own bank account the initial deposit and the total price of the purchase payments and other like closing expenses and will keep these in custody until the parties in terms of the agreements give their instructions to wire transfer the different agreed payments too.
This is the best way to save the money paid in the case of non-compliance with some of the parties involved in the purchase process.
The estimated Escrow fees for its services run about $700.00 USD
