Tax and Insurance Payments

Real Estate Agent with Prudential CT

Your monthly mortgage payment will be used to repay the money you borrowed plus interest. Part of your monthly payment may be deposited into an "escrow account" (also known as "reserve" or "Impound" account) so your lender or servicer can pay your real estate taxes, property insurance, mortgage insurance and/or flood insurance. You should ask your lender or mortgage broker if you will be required to set up an escrow or impound account for taxes and insurance payments.

This is great advice the buyer should find out all the necessary details involved in the process before closing.

You know Kris, most people don't know some of this stuff, because nobody ever explains the process to them at all.  When I was an escrow officer, buyers and sellers came in to sign documents with me, and they asked questions that blew my mind.  They were simple things that should have been explained to them by their agent, their lender, or even their escrow officer but never happened.  I like to make sure my people know what they are getting into.
