Your earnest money must be deposited as soon as possible at the chosen title company to be held in an escrow account. Funds can be in the form of a check, cashier’s check or money order. Personal check is usually the most convenient for our clients. We will take the check to the title company with a copy of the accepted contract so they can open escrow. You will choose the amount of earnest money you would like to put down when we discuss the structuring and terms of the offer.
