I am in TX, preparing to submit an offer on a house.We will be offering $350,000, cash. Our Realtor wants to know how much earnest money we want to put down, and how much option money.I don’t yet understand the different between the two. Are they two different piles of money? Are they refundable? How would I get my money back? How do I determine the amount of each deposit? Are the deposits count towards my $350,000 at closing? Is a larger amount better? What else do I need to know?Yes, I will be asking my Realtor in the morning about this but I’d like to get a heads up on the info tonight!Thanks much.
