"Earnest money deposit" or "good faith deposit" is the amount of money that you put down as a gesture of good faith. You see you have to put down what the call consideration. A legal contract is made up of three things. Offer -what you put down in the contract and sign Acceptance - What the seller agrees to and you agree to. Consideration - something of value. Money, a check. In Metro Detroit real estate it is usually $500, or $1000 or more that the real estate company or title company holds.
