a split amt in "receiving" account does not match corresponding amt in "originating" account
I read and applied the steps in Jason Heard's "Accounting Tutorial for a Home Purchase and Sale in Quicken with a HUD-1 form [Updated]." I am using the "house" account to enter HUD-1 entries via a split transaction. One of the split amounts (addditional equity that we put into the house) is directed (assigned?) to the "escrow" account. When I open the escrow account, the amount there is different from the amount in the "house" account. In constructing the split transaction in the "house" account, the amount of the overall transaction is the sale price of the house. The split amounts in this transaction correspond to each of the entries in the HUD 1. As I added split items in the transaction, a "remainder" was shown after each transaction representing the sale price minus the item. After entering all of the HUD-1 items except the additional equity amount, the remainder was in fact exactly the additional equity amount. I then assigned this amount to the category "escrow account." When I open the escrow account, the amount shown there does not match the amount (additional equity) in the "house" account! How is this possible?
