Re: Question on earnest money amount in CA

Are they now asking $520k because you asked them to pay your closing costs and pre-paid expenses in the offer?

 

If so, then pay your own closing costs and reduce the price to what you are willing to pay. Some sellers absolutely do not want to pay the buyer's costs, especially when they see their own costs to close.
