Now, You Can Deposit Earnest Money On the Go!

StartSafeWe don’t say this lightly: The newest addition to our already successful tool, startSafe, is a game changer. Starting soon, you’ll be able to deposit earnest money in seconds using a mobile app — just like you do for your own checking account. It’s simple. It’s intuitive. And it’s about to save home buyers and sellers a whole lot of hassle.

“The startSafe application has been a successful way for FNT to gather the information from your buyers and sellers securely and quicker than we have been able to in the past,” says VP-Treasure Valley Manager Phil Archer. “With fewer interruptions to your day from us attempting to collect information, and with a reduction in the liability caused by you and your brokerage gathering private information from your buyers and sellers, hopefully you’ll have more energy for the next sale, the next purchase, or even a little more time with your family.”

The best part of StartSafe is what you don’t have to do.

No app to download. You’ll be able to enjoy the safety and simplicity of a deposit from the convenience of a smartphone, but you won’t need an app to do it.

No third-party developers. That means no extra fees and the added safety of knowing that you’re working directly with Fidelity National Title.

No hassle. Depositing money takes just a few clicks and will be delivered directly to escrow.

No contact. Your health and safety is important to us! With startSafe, you won’t need to sign any forms or come in contact with another person. It’s all on your phone.

Here’s how it works:

Step 1
Take a pic of the front and back of the check and upload it to startSafe.

Step 2
Type in your contact details so we can update you on your progress.

Step 3
Share financial and property details.

Step 4
Get your wiring instructions straight from startSafe.

Step 5
Submit your settlement agreement.

That’s it! With no app or software to download, no third-party companies, and no travel, startSafe makes it easier than ever to safely and securely deposit earnest money.

“Fidelity National Title will continue to reinvent the way that we interact with the consumers in your transactions,” Archer says. “Fidelity wants to support privacy, safety, and professionalism while always keeping YOU the focus in your transactions. The startSafe program is just another example of how we put YOU first while providing the exemplary service to the consumer.”
