After a buyer makes a serious effort to but a house, a property typically enters escrow, a period of time where a third party (almost always a bank) holds a house while the transaction proceeds. 

During this period of time, buyers often order inspections on the house to discover any unforeseen liabilities and issues. To end escrow, buyers must secure funding to purchase the house and finalize any details surrounding the sale.
