I have found a property in fla. it is 176 units. the seller seems motivated. the prperty is in need of management and fix-up. my question is …should letters of intent for multi-residential in Fla have ernst money attached? if i am correct usually investments of this size don’t need ernst money due to the fact that the buyer will already be commiting a large portion just to do the due diligence.That should show enough commitment.
what is your take?

Nothing demonstrates your committment to the seller of your desire to purchase the property the way money does. Upon signing a contract, a refundable deposit is typically put up and gets applied against the purchase price upon closing. That money goes “hard” or nonrefundable upon expiration of the due diligence period (typically 30-45 days after signing the contract). Oh, by the way, I don’t know if you’ve ever purchased Florida multi-family before - make sure that your environmental due diligence performs a test for radon. If I may be so bold as to ask - where in Florida is this property? Happy investing.
