What Is An Escrow Account?

Your mortgage lender may require or suggest that you set up an escrow account. An escrow account is established to pay taxes and/or insurance (including flood insurance). A portion of the monthly payment is deposited into the account to make these payments. Escrow payments may change because the amount of your real estate taxes and/or insurance bills may fluctuate.
