How much earnest money should we put down with the offer?   Isn't that always a fun conundrum. 1%, 2%, %%%, none, or an option. What is the right answer? The right answer is basically dominated by local custom. Sounds quaint doesn't it? The buyer always asks " what if the deal goes bad...can I ge...
