After raising my offer price, the listing agent said Homepath would accept my offer, but wanted more (10%) earnest money. &nbsp; All of this was done over email between my agent and the listing agent. &nbsp;Should I have received formal counter offer paperwork? and is it normal for Homepath to ask for more earnest money as part of a counter offer. &nbsp;All this sounds very suspicious to me, and I am inclined to walk away, unless there is evidence that this is par for the course for Homepath properties.<br \><br \>7 replies Tue, 03 Apr 2012 02:53:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-normal-for-Homepath-offer-negotiations/437634/ 2012-04-03T02:53:00Z How do I get more information on a pre-forclosure listed on Zillow http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-get-more-information-on-a-pre-forclosure-listed-on-Zillow/562119/ We are interested in reaching out to owners of #76770544 to make offer.
