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.
