Couldn’t agree more. Remeber this is “his” house that you are trying to make money from. With NO $$$ money coming from you, what incentive do you have to make this deal work? You could just walk away at any time … no loss. However, $3000 shows him you are serious and that you now ALSO have a stake in “making the deal”.
