The Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) is an important aspect of the house buying process. This deposit essentially indicates to the seller that you, the buyer, are serious about wanting to purchase their home. The deposit shows you are committed. Once the deposit is accepted by the seller, the property is then taken off the market, therefore the seller is trusting that the buyer is eager to move forward with the sale. Otherwise, the seller is losing valuable time and money by removing the property from active listings. It is also a safeguard for sellers, deterring buyers from making offers on multiple properties.
It is no secret amongst real estate agents that competition continues to grow.

A key factor for this is likely the expense of buying newer, turn-key houses.
