Yolanda Hoversten We open escrow as soon as the offer is signed and is in an executory status. In my area the attorney takes care of the title search.

In Rhode Island the listing goes into "pending". I get the contract to my office along with the escrow deposit. Title usually doesn't begin until the home inspection and any negotiations are completed, usually 10 days later.

No such thing in Georgia.  We're just "pending" and I get the contract to the attorney immediately. We wait for the due diligence period to be over before we order title in most cases.

Yolanda, I get the contract to the title company right away, along with the earnest money check.  I've also gotten a whole lot better with the office paperwork.  We are still far from paperless, and I try to get it in right away.  We have a wonderful admin staff, and I've decided it's important to do my little bit to make it easier for them.

If I'm a listing agent, I order a title search as soon as I get a listing or even prior to it, so  I open the escrow the next day the latest.

According to CA RPA, the buyer shall deposit EMD to escrow in 3 days after acceptance, so we must act fast.

Yolanda, in Denver the listing agent orders the title commitment too, and I try to do so within 12-24 hours.

As quickly as possible, the day the contract was executed, or the next day.  Sometimes if the contract is executed on a Friday it will be on Monday.
