More on Mr. Cooper Escrow Period
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 an exchange between a seller and buyer is finished. Escrow accounts are used for many types of transactions, but we narrow in on how it applies to the world of real estate. If you're the one buying the home, you generally place a percentage of the property price in escrow. As a home seller, you agree to remove the home from the market during the escrow period so it can be inspected.
Escrow carries a different meaning once you're in your home and enjoying it day in and day out. Your escrow account is like a piggy bank that holds money for your mortgage company to pay your property taxes and insurance premiums. The account makes it so that you don't have to worry about keeping track of or saving for those expenses. Reach out to one of our dedicated customer service agents to learn about your Mr. Cooper escrow account or former Nationstar escrow account. We are here to walk with you, whether you're buying or just settling in. We can show you a better way.
