Lilu1026 asked:
We have had a home built with a large national builder. We paid a $5000 EMD. The contract has been renegotiated and the seller now pays all closing costs. We also have a zero down FTHB loan. Where does the $5000 EMD go at closing? Does the builder cut us a check directly?

Deborah Jones asked:
