This #RealEstateRealTalk we are discussing one of our most requested topics.
What’s the difference between down payment and deposit?
Let’s break it down...
⭐️ A deposit is always provided with your offer. Either provided herewith or upon acceptance- depending on if you’re competing or not.
⭐️ A deposit will most likely always be at least 5% in the GTA. Providing 5% deposit of your offer price shows the Sellers that you’re strong and confident to win.
1️⃣Please refer to an expert on deposit amounts, your finance situations, etc.
2️⃣ The deposit does not go right to your account. The deposit will sit with the Brokerages Trust Account most likely until closing.
⭐️ A down payment is the TOTAL amount you will be putting down on your home. This will not be needed the day you are making your offer.
