WHAT IS EARNEST MONEY?

But what is earnest money? Earnest money is a deposit you pay to show the buyer you're serious about the transaction. Both the buyer and the seller want to make sure the deal goes through, and an earnest money deposit helps give the deal solid footing. It's important to understand what earnest money is and how it can affect your transaction when buying a home.

Is earnest money a legal requirement to buy a home?

No. But money talks and deposits keep buyers from changing their minds.

How much money do you need?

Earnest money amounts vary by area and can range from 1% of the home purchase price to 5%,depending on the type of home you're purchasing.

Are deposits ever nonrefundable?

Real estate contracts dictate timelines and responsibilities for both buyers and sellers. Buyers risk losing their deposit when they don't comply with the contract's terms, and sellers lose valuable marketing time.

How are disputes handled?

If a deal closes within the contract's timeline and you're able to provide documentation, you'll likely get your money back or, depending on the agreement, it will be applied as a credit toward the purchase price of the home. But every situation is different, and issues can and do arise.

Who gets to keep the money?

One of three scenarios will occur: The buyer has refunded the money because of failed contingencies; the deposit is applied to the purchase price or refunded to the buyer when the sale closes, or the seller receives the deposit because the buyer backed out of the deal for reasons not covered in the contract.

Is it ever fair to forfeit a deposit?

If you back out of the agreement for reasons not covered under your contingency agreement, you may not get your deposit back. Be sure you fully understand how failed contingencies affect both you and the seller to avoid confusion and heartbreak later on.

What's Really Included In Closing Costs?

Expect property taxes, homeowners insurance, and lender's costs to be part of your settlement-day tab. A few days before you meet with your real estate agent, a title company representative, and your loan officer for this joyous event, you should have received from the title company a copy of your closing documents. Read these documents carefully they will include details on the closing costs that are due upon settlement.

What are closing costs?

Closing costs are lender and third-party fees paid at the closing of a real estate transaction, and they can be financed as part of the deal or be paid upfront. They range from 2% to 5% of the purchase price of a home.

What's included in closing costs?

Closing costs will cover both recurring and nonrecurring fees that are a part of your transaction.

Recurring costs are ongoing expenses that you will continue to pay as a homeowner, with a portion due upon closing.

Nonrecurring fees are one-time fees associated with borrowing money and the services that were required to purchase the property.

How to prepare for closing costs

The best time to study closing costs is when you're shopping for a lender and can compare your desired loan amount with interest rates you're offered (plus any discount points you might plan to pay upfront to lower those rates). Then use a closing-cost calculator to determine what your costs might be. The calculator will gauge your monthly mortgage payments, based on whether you're financing the closing costs into your mortgage or whether you've decided to pay them upfront.

How to Save For a House in One Year

How can saving money here and there add up? Here are 7 ideas to help you save for a house in one year.

1. Slash Your Rent

Move in with a friend, family member, or roommate to lower this expenses for the year. Saving $50 per month means an extra $600 in your pocket for the year.

2. Rethink What's Essential

When it comes to budgeting, even having a car (or an extra car) should be up for debate. When it comes to budgeting, even having a car (or an extra car) should be up for debate.

3. Ditch the little expenses

Make your own coffee, color your own hair, and cut your cable cord. The average cable bill costs about $100 per month. Most streaming services are less than $10 per month. This will give you a monthly savings of $90. Cut back on the number of times you eat out or take out meals each week. If grabbing lunch at a local place costs $10 but packing your own costs only $4, a DIY approach could add up to a monthly savings of $180.

4. Go Back to Basics

Your cell phone, insurance plan, and credit cards: These are the cost of 'operating' your life. Request discounts, switch to basic plans where possible, and look for reward plans. Making changes could save you close to $400 per month.

5. Find a Side Job

While taking on extra work or a second job might not be sustainable for years, doing so for 12 months will help give you the boost you need to save that $50,000.

6. Embrace Minimalism

Did you splurge on something you never even wore? New, unopened items like shoes or designer perfume can go for a fair price.You could earn up to $1000, on average, by re-selling the items in your closet. Once you've mined that source, open a few boxes in the basement. Vintage vinyl, signed copies of books, even matchbox cars, pin collections and posters (especially those in mint condition) are worth more than the effort of posting, packing, and selling.

7. Get Wise About Entertainment

Eliminate expensive entertainment. If you're used to buying a bottle of wine and a six-pack at the store each week, your alcohol tally could be up to $65 per month. Try the no-spend weekend and you could be looking at an additional monthly savings of $45. Exercising at home instead of paying for a gym membership (or finding free yoga classes in your area) can slim your budget with a monthly savings of $60 per month.

7 Ways To Get Your Home Open-House Ready For Less Than $1,000

An open house is your chance to show off your home's best assets. Don't let old carpets or dated fixtures give off the wrong vibe.

1. Paint (parts of) the exterior

2. Kick up your kitchen

If you have an old stove or dishwasher, swap it out for a stainless steel model. Updating light fixtures, replacing old cabinet hardware, or painting older cabinets white also makes your kitchen appear fresh and new without breaking the bank.

3. Replace the vanity in your bathroom

If you have a powder room that hasn't been updated, replace the vanity with a newer model. Add new hand towels, a rug, and a shower curtain to complete the "renovation."

4. Slipcover furniture that has seen better days

If your couch is looking a little threadbare or stained, but you aren't ready to replace it just yet, buy a slipcover in a neutral shade to hide the imperfections. (Then forbid your family from sitting on it until after the open house!)

5. Make your bedroom feel like a hotel suite

So that means corralling all the clutter (books on the nightstand, accessories on the dresser), storing extra pieces of furniture (like that treadmill that doubles as a clothes hanger), and cleaning off bathroom counters.

6. Freshen up your walls and floors

If you have hardwood floors, get them professionally polished before your open house. If you have carpeting, get it professionally steamed before potential buyers come calling. And while you're at it, give your walls a once-over and wipe away any scuff marks. If a new paint job is necessary, consider a neutral shade or a paint color that will make your space feel larger and brighter.

7. Perk up your patio

Add potted plants or flowers for a burst of color and toss any broken outdoor furniture. Outdoor accent pillows are an inexpensive upgrade for loungers and chairs. If it's summer, or you live in a warm climate, set the table too. This way, buyers can imagine themselves eating a meal on the patio or deck.

Sold!!

What does pending mean?

Typically means the property is Under Contract and moving toward closing.If the property says it is pending it means there is currently a buyer that has written an offer on the home and the seller that has accepted said offer. They may be in the beginning of the process which means they still have inspections to do on the home. During the inspection period the buyer could cancel the transaction if unhappy with the outcome of the inspection and then the home will come back on the market as active. But basically the home is sold already, however, there is a slight chance that the sale will fall apart so there is always a chance that you could still purchase the property if that happens.
