Contract: A Contract is created when both a Buyer and Seller agree to the terms of the property purchase and it has been reduced to writing.

Earnest Money: Typically known as “good faith” money, earnest money is a check written by the Buyer at contract acceptance, and is held in an escrow/trust account until Closing. It is used as a Buyer Credit at Closing.

Due Diligence Money: This is a check written by the Buyer and made directly to the Seller at contract acceptance. This is a common incentive, and is used to make an Offer stronger. It is used as a Buyer Credit at Closing.

Due Diligence Period: A set time in which the Buyer has the right to conduct any and all inspections. We usually refer to this time period as the time for negotiation, however at 5:00 pm on the set Due Diligence Date, everything is locked in and negotiation is over.
