What to Know If You’re in Escrow with Mr. Cooper
Escrow period is a phrase you'll hear used throughout the homeownership journey, whether you're a home buyer or a seller. The escrow period is when a third party holds something of value, usually money, in a special account until a deal between a buyer and seller is finished. Escrow accounts are used for many types of business handlings, but we shine the spotlight on how it applies to the world of real estate. If you're the home buyer, you typically put a percentage of the property price in the escrow account. As a home seller, you agree to take the home off the market while it's "in escrow" so it can be inspected.
Once you become a homeowner, escrow carries a different meaning. Your escrow account holds money that your mortgage servicer sets aside to pay your insurance premiums and property taxes. The account makes it so that you don't have to worry about keeping track of or saving for those expenses. Contact a customer service agent today to chat about your former Nationstar escrow account or current Mr. Cooper escrow account. We're here to support you, whether you're buying or just settling in. Let's get you home.
