Welcome to the Escrow Technologies Inc. website. This site has been designed to let you know a little about us and to provide some services that will make your escrow experience a pleasant one.

To begin with, from the NEW ESCROW section you can give us the information on a new sale to get the escrow started right away. That information will be immediately sent to our office and you will be contacted for the rest of the information necessary to begin the escrow process. The next section, “Video How To’s” is a series of videos designed to help you with some of the paperwork that you may encounter throughout the escrow process. With these videos we hope we can answer some of your questions if they arise after business hours.

Under the SERVICES tab you will find many links that may be helpful during the home buying process or even during the time you are settling in to your new home. In this area you can also find a glossary of terms used in the real estate arena with a brief definition of each. The DOCUMENTS section is a broad selection of documents that are often asked for and you can search for a blank document whenever the need arises.

We hope you find our site helpful and please let us now if there are other services or information you would like to see.

  • 08-14-2014 / More Money Down Adds to U.S. First-Time Buyer Blues

    The challenges facing prospective buyers of the least expensive homes in the U.S. are getting harder to overcome. The median down payment for the cheapest 25 percent of properties sold in 2013 was $9,480 compared with $6,037 in 2007, the last year of the previous economic expansion, according to data from 25 of the largest metro areas compiled by brokerage firm Redfin Corp. Younger adults, who would normally be making initial forays into real estate, are among those most affected, weakening the foundations of the housing market and limiting its contribution to economic growth. The median down payment for the cheapest 25 percent of homes was 7.5 percent of the sales price last year, up from a low of 3.1 percent in 2006 and compared with an average 4.2 percent from 2001 through 2007, according to Seattle-based Redfin.

She recently provided a mortgage of more than $6 million for a client's purchase of a second property in Colorado.
