Although I agree with Peter, some Settlement or Title companies that have been traditionally used for this purpose experienced financial difficulty, and have gone out with the escrow funds they were holding lost. So, make certain the company you select is secure. The funds that are held in escrow are not insured, the way the FDIC insures bank deposits. You might also use an attorney, whose funds are overseen by law.

Escrow services, by definition, are normally legit. If you're in the USA go with a domestic one. See if there's one in your state.
