Escrow is a word that is used in real estate transactions and other transactions where a large sum of money is involved.
To further explain what escrow is in real estate... escrow is a financial arrangement where a third party (such as the bank), holds and regulates payment of the funds required for two parties involved in a given transaction. This helps to ensure and secure the transaction by keeping the payment in a secured escrow account, which is released when ALL of the terms of an agreement are met as overseen by the escrow company.
Escrows are helpful when their is a large amount of money involved and a certain number of obligations need to be fulfilled before a payment is released like in the case of a home being built where the buyer wants confirmation of the quality of work being done before making the full payment, and the builder doesn't want to extend a massive amount of work without any assurance that he/she will not receive payment.
Furthermore, escrow protects all parties involved in a transaction where money is involved.

He's an outstanding guy with a big heart who cares about what house your going to make your home. I'm at ease as we look at houses because with his background in construction he can pick up on expensive repairs that I had no clue would be an issue.
