Common questions

Q: What if more parties than just me, the buyer, and the escrow holder need to know the status?

A: No problem. You will be asked "who else should be notified of payment?" during the transfer request's creation. Just add any additional party's email at this point.

Q: How does my buyer authorize a transfer?

A: When the agent clicks REQUEST, we generate a secure link to your buyer's email address. They can then use that link to quickly and easily enter the rest of their information, securely attach a bank account and send the money to the escrow account.

Q: Does Earnnest store homebuyers' banking information?

No, Earnnest does not store banking information — actually, we never even see it.

Q: What benefits does Earnnest provide to real estate agents?

A: Here’s some of the benefits Earnnest provides

  • Proof of Intent (copy of paper check), generated on-demand and when requested, the Proof of Intent is automatically emailed to the agent.
  • Step-by-step updates on a buyer’s earnest money journey from creation of request to deposit.
