If you opted into Pay Now

Pay a non-refundable fee in addition to the RibbonCash Fee. This could potentially offer significant savings to the buyer in the case of an appraisal shortfall. Payment is submitted in the Earnest Money Deposit.

If you opted into Pay at Closing

Bring cash to close to cover your potential appraisal shortfall at closing

Appraisal gap
Option 1:
You can always bring cash to close to cover the potential appraisal shortfall at closing.

Option 2:
Sign the RibbonCash+ agreement and pay Ribbon when a home sale or cash out refinance event occurs. You may also choose to pay Ribbon back early.
No appraisal gap
That's great! No additional RibbonCash+ fee is required.
