I’m selling my house. What kind of down payment or earnest money should I request from the Buyer?

A contract must have consideration, even if it is “but a peppercorn.”  The earnest money amount is negotiable and can be whatever the parties agree upon.  As a rule of thumb, 1-2% of the purchase price is common.
