Introduction to TrustFunds

Close the digital earnest money gap. TrustFunds saves time, increases security and provides real-time tracking throughout the earnest money process.

Overview of TrustFunds

TrustFunds is a convenient, web-based service that allows buyers to simply and securely make their earnest money payment online and easily verify their status at any time. With TrustFunds electronic earnest money, buyers retain control of their account information. There are no photocopies of checks or images of checks in emails or phones left floating around. Account information remains encrypted at rest and in transit. Other than a nominal service fee per transaction (which may be passed on to the buyer), there is no charge for making earnest payments to participating brokers’ accounts via TrustFunds. Brokers who want to accept earnest money payments into their accounts may purchase a premium TrustFunds membership.
