## What is earnest money?

Earnest money is the money that a homebuyer pays to the home seller to show good faith that they want to move forward with the property purchase. Homebuyers must make the earnest deposit before he/she goes out to get a mortgage on the house, and the earnest money is usually deposited in an escrow account to protect the homebuyer.

## How much is earnest money?

The earnest money can be anywhere from 1% to 3% of the property price in many states. However, in some states like New York City, the earnest deposit can be as high as 10% of the property price. For example, if the property price is \$500,000, and the earnest money is 3%, then you would pay 3% of \$500,000 as the earnest deposit which is \$15,000.

The following earnest money deposit table shows how much you have to pay as the earnest deposit with different property prices and earnest money percentages.
