Earnest money is money put down to demonstrate your seriousness about buying a home. It must be substantial enough to demonstrate good faith and is usually between 1-5% of the purchase price (though the amount can vary with local customs and conditions). If your offer is accepted, the earnest money becomes part of your down payment or closing costs. If the offer is rejected, your money is returned to you. If you back out of a deal, you may forfeit the entire amount.
We like to think of ourselves as matchmakers. We know how and where to find a buyer or tenant for a property, which in its exact location, is a perfect fit. We know-how to do this because we believe that ‘Local know-how’ makes the difference. By knowing our local areas, intimately, we get ‘better results’ for our clients.
