Buyer Question: What is Earnest Money? 

Great question. When a buyer makes an offer on a home, they will usually put up about 1% of the purchase price of the home. This money is usually held by the broker in an escrow account. 

When the deal closes, this money becomes part of the Buyer's down payment for the home.Earnest money can be lost to the Seller if the Buyer does not hold up their end of the contract. This is where a good agent can help a Buyer keep up with all contract requirements and timelines.

Seller Question: Should I do an open House?

The answer to that question is almost always yes. Open houses are great ways to expose your home to many more people, and selling your home is all about exposure for your home. 

Even if no one shows up to your open house, we make sure that we advertise in social media, post signs in the neighborhood, and even door knock around your home to get the word out. 

We also bring in a host agent to be at your home during the open house hours. With all this exposure for your home, we are always successful!
