Earnest Money - Buy a Home - JYB Realty

You've looked at many Atlanta homes for sale and finally found one that you love. You probably can't wait to get started with the purchasing process. But you have to make an offer to show to make sure the seller takes the house off the market as you work on different closing aspects. Accepting an offer is a big commitment for a seller. If the buyer backs out of the deal, the seller loses a significant amount of money and time finding another buyer. This is where sellers request earnest money. Read on to learn what earnest money is, when to offer it, and steps you can take to protect your upfront investment.

Understanding Earnest Money

Earnest money is a deposit made to a seller as a good-faith gesture that you mean business when it comes to buying the house. It's a way of you showing the seller that you're serious about closing the deal. Sellers tend to favor these deposits because it gives them peace of mind to proceed to the next steps of the transaction. Earnest money doesn't go to the seller right away. Instead, it is held in an escrow account with an escrow company until closing.
