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
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.
