Subject: Instructions for Earnest Money

Greetings {{ deal.firstNames }},

Congrats on your offer being accepted!!! This is the beginning of what is called the "Escrow Phase". You will be in this phase until the day we close on the home. There will be steps to take throughout the process, but don't worry...that's what we're here for. We will walk you through each step along the way.

For now, this is just a friendly reminder that your Earnest Money in the amount of {{ deal.earnestMoneyAmount }} is due by or before {{ deal.earnestMoneyDueDate }}. Here are some helpful tips on Earnest Money submission:

  • Earnest Money MUST be paid in one of the following formats: Check, Money Order, or Cashier’s Check. No cash will be accepted for payment.
  • Make all checks payable to <ENTER COMPANY NAME HERE>. In the “FOR” or “Memo” line, please write out the street address of the property you’re purchasing {{ deal.street }}
  • Please either mail or bring the payment to our office located at <ENTER ADDRESS HERE>. If mailing, be sure to expedite/overnight the payment in a timely manner to ensure that our office receives it by or before {{ deal.earnestMoneyDueDate }}. If bringing directly to our office, you can leave the payment with our front desk receptionist or Office Manager. We will send you a confirmation once we’ve been notified that the funds have been received.
