What is earnest money? Earnest money is the portion of your down payment that is held in an attorney escrow account for the duration of the transaction. It is the money that holds the buyer to the deal as it is at-risk should the contract be breached. It is refundable if any of the contingencies agreed to during negotiations are not met.

30 Videos in 30 Days – get smarter about buying and selling real estate.

Why are we doing these videos? Because I LOVE a challenge! About three weeks ago my sales manager challenged me to create 30 videos in 30 days – answering a question a day. The purpose is to educate my clients, their friends and family and anyone else who might find me and my team on the world wide web! I am creating these videos off-the-cuff, unedited and unscripted, designed to make the viewer a little smarter about buying and selling real estate in NJ!
