The Earnest Money Needs To Be Delivered Per The Terms Of The Purchase Agreement 

This Is Typically Within 24 Or 48 Hours Of The Acceptance Of The Purchase Agreement

Earnest Money Is Typically 1% Of The Purchase Price. This Amount Will Most Often Become Part Of Your Downpayment At Closing. Earnest Payments Are Held In An Escrow Account Typically By The Listing Brokerage. That Payment Demonstrates To The Seller(s), That the Buyer(s), Are Serious About Closing On The Purchase Of The Property. Most Purchase Agreements Have Contingencies, Like Mortgage, Inspection and More. These Contingencies Typically Allow For Full Refund Of The Earnest Money Under Certain Conditions.

You Can Pay The Earnest Money With Either a Personal Check, A Bank Check Like a Cashier's Check Or A Money Order, Or You Can Easily Pay Electronically Using The Earnnest App
Just Let Your Agent Know Which Option You Prefer!

Paper checks typically need to be hand delivered to the Listing Broker's actual office. Note with a hand full of Brokerages you may be able to drop off the Earnest Money check at a nearby branch office. However, more often the Earnest Money check will need to be delivered to the Listing Agent's actual office which can be in another part of the Greater Indianapolis Area! 

Another option, that eliminates the hand delivery of the check, is that you can pay Earnest Money with largest digital Earnest Money service in the USA that provides a secure, compliant and fully digital / electronic transfer of Earnest Money funds at a 1-time cost of $18.00. You can use the "online" Earnnest App from any computer, or a mobile device with internet connectivity.

NOTE: Some National & Regional Builders Also Support/Require Paying Earnest Money Using An Electronic Direct Payment Process.

As A Seller... "I always felt relaxed and like his only client." 

I always felt relaxed and like his only client. It is without hesitation that we recommend Mitch Rolsky as a real estate agent for both the buy and sell side.

We have worked with Mitch twice in the purchase of a downtown Indy home and then with the subsequent sale of the same house just over 2 years later. Mitch's guidance allowed us to purchase the home in a desirable location at a price level that was at the lower end of the market range at that time. During the sale of the home, Mitch paid no attention to what the home was sold for earlier but focused on what the market would bear. Mitch focused on selling the value of the home and the location as opposed to price. He knows the market extensively and set a selling price and sales strategy that worked perfectly in a softening seller's market.

We moved because of a career change which forced us to move away during the sales process. Mitch took care of everything from essence, we left our entire belongings in the care of Mitch. Friendly, detailed, trustworthy, knowledgeable and professional are but a few of the attributes of Mitch. Thanks Mitch....


As A Buyer... "Purchasing Indy real estate virtually from California during covid, was not within my comfort zone."

Purchasing Indy real estate virtually from California during covid, was not within my comfort zone. I needed an agent to patiently show me things as though I was there myself, speak with blunt honesty and find balance between my "desire" list and a stable long term investment.

Mitch doesn't miss a beat! He is highly intelligent, engaged with his clients - stellar communicator with a wealth of wisdom not only through the home buying process, but in life. I always felt relaxed and like his only client, yet knew he was doing much hard work in the background.

I've heard in life that "your realtor is your best friend!" Best friends work for your best interest; he was always right there and always told it like it appreciated!!! He exceeded all expectations and hope to work together again in the future!
