For Sale By Owner


For some homeowners, choosing to do a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) sale of their home is a smart choice. Of course, while the financial savings may be significant, a FSBO is also more complicated and time-consuming than most people assume. One of the most important aspects of any FSBO home is ensuring compliance with local, state, and federal real estate regulations. This may be a very tall order for sellers with no experience or understanding of the complex laws involved.

Opening up an escrow account during a FSBO residential purchase agreement is not only convenient; it also protects both the buyer and seller in a For Sale By Owner transaction. New Era Escrow serves as a neutral third party, serving both parties in the transaction. We maintain the accountability and security of all funds and documents in the transaction on behalf of the buyer and seller until all contract conditions are met, at which point escrow is closed and documents and funds change hands.
