Are you in the process of buying a new home? An important part of this process is putting down earnest money. This helps show the seller that you’re serious about purchasing a new home.
While depositing earnest money isn’t always a requirement, it benefits both the buyer and the seller, and can be put towards your down payment or closing costs. It protects you if something is wrong with the home, and it protects the seller if you decide that this deal isn’t for you and back out.
At Continental Title Company, we understand how hectic your schedule can be. Writing a check and driving to one of our locations can be a difficult task to complete when you have a long enough to-do list already. We want to make this step easier for you, and through our online earnest money deposits, you won’t have to worry about finding time in your schedule to come to our offices.
This new method offers you all the convenience. With just a click of a button, you’ll be transferred to a secure payment form where you can fill out your information and make the payment. Then voila, you’ve completed your deposit.
After a contract has been approved, your earnest money deposit will be put into an escrow account which will be managed by none other than one of our escrow agents until the deal has been closed. Doing this can provide you, the buyer with added protection should the unfortunate event come where a seller has questionable intentions.
