A fully executed contract is a legally binding arrangement between a potential purchaser and the property’s
seller which most often is negotiated with consideration included. This consideration (initial and any
additional earnest money deposits) is to be held in the escrow pending the fulfillment of conditions or
contingencies in the effective agreement. In Lee County it is customary that the earnest money is held
in the Listing Broker’s escrow account but can be held by the Selling Broker’s or in the closing agent’s
escrow account as law as all parties agree as to where the deposit is held.

timeline to mark every stage in the process of closing your real estate contract Meeting the requirements on
time ensures a smoother flow of negotiations and also ensures that each party involved is not in beach of their
agreement. During the process we will keep you updated so you will always be prepared for the next step. Your
communication during this phase from contract to closing is extremely crucial to this process.
