Financing Kentucky One Home at a Time
I would, under no circumstances, take cash from them and pay with MY credit card. Appearance of fraud, collusion, influence is too great to have your name and credit card associated with an appraisal that can make or break a mortgage commitment of your buyer, and on who's purchase (regardless if it is mortgaged or cash) you will make a salary from when the house closes.
There are many workarounds. However, we don't know enough about this situation to be very helpful.
One can assume the buyer is making a cash purchase. Jacques makes a great suggestion. Don't let this become a problem.
I am also not sure we are allowed to take cash and pay on our own credit card, I'd check out that suggestion with your Broker.
