What is escrow?

Escrow is an arrangement where a third party holds funds and manages payments. Escrow arrangements are normally enforced when large sums of money change hands, such as real estate purchases. The third party will safeguard funds until the terms of a contract are fulfilled. This way, the two contracting parties are kept safe without needing to transfer money to each other.
