Do we close escrow after the bank accept my offer for a short sale or vice versa?The listing agent asks me to deposit a $5000 check to escrow company before the bank accept my offer for a short sale. I know this might be a sensitive question, but does is sound rite? Is she affraid that I might back out of the deal? I gave her a copy of the check, but she said I still need to give her a real check after the bank send people to do the house inspection, so she can tranfer the title to my name. I am really confused.November 06 2010 - Casa de Santiago00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
