All-cash offers are often a strategic move when multiple offers are put forward on a new home. Paying cash will help your offer stand out and show the seller you’re serious.
Right from the start, the seller knows that you won’t need to secure financing. Financial contingencies are removed along with other common financial hurdles. In short, you won’t need additional approval in order for the sale to go through.
All-cash offers help new homebuyers exercise freedom and opportunity, especially in areas where the housing market is competitive.
