Electronic earnest money means you don’t have to drive across town to pick up a paper check – you can collect earnest money payments on MLS-listed properties with 3 (yes 3!) simple clicks. Convenience and simplicity for you AND your buyer.
Beyond that, you’ll be able to track the earnest money payment from the time you send the request to the buyer until it fully deposits into the designated trust account.

See the status of the earnest money payment every step of the way. Automatic tracking when your buyer opens the email, when they submit the funds, and when it clears into the trust account. Plus, all parties are automatically notified so you can move forward with your transaction!
