Christina M. Hunt, Real Estate Agent COMPASS

All of the conditions of the purchase and sale agreement have been fulfilled. The escrow agent prepares a written summary of the funds received in escrow, and the moneys paid out. The agent records the new deed with the County Recorder, and delivers a new deed to the buyer. Any remaining funds from the purchase price are then remitted to the seller. When the escrow has been accounted for, title is given to the buyer.
