Hi there Marilyn,
I'm a little unsure as to how to answer your question, as a deposit is usually reserved for rental properties while this is a house for sale. In any case, I'd recommend that you reach out to the listing agent to get an answer to your question. To do that, just use the orange "Contact Agent" button on this page: http://www.trulia.com/property/3103861909-112-Sandy-Landing-Rd-Cedar-Island-NC-28520
Good luck with your search,
