Does the earnest money go to me for moving expenses? Or does all the money come to me after closing.I don't have $5k in the bank to move but expect an offer within days of putting it up on the market. The builder for the new place can close within days of me sellingm my property, but I'm concerned that I won't have the money to move out of state and live in limbo for a week. Can I get the earnest money after inspection?October 10 2009 - French Quarter00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
