A third party, called an escrow agent, is responsible for collecting documents, cash, etc. Since people can get nervous when large amounts of money are involved, it’s important to have someone involved without an emotional attachment.

A suspended account is an industry term that has different meanings.

In a broad sense, an escrow account is a set of services provided by an escrow account. In addition to finances, the escrow agent collects contracts, purchase contract documents, etc. In a sense, this makes the recipient an arbitrator in real estate transactions.

Escrow is standard operating procedure for almost all real estate transactions. In the end, this is an effective way to close the deal.
