Terri - absolutely! Cash ONLY means that you cannot put a contingency on the purchase contract for your ability to get approved for a loan. Keep in mind that, should you be unable to obtain a loan, you risk losing your down payment.

I can help you work through these questions/reservations, and make sure we find you a perfect home!

The property may also be over valued and a bank would not lend based on the recently closed sales.

Qualifying through a conventional loan is not really the issue, being able to purchase the property for the asking price may be the problem. Last 2 condos I have placed under contract this month received offers 10% above the last sale in the complex and 15% - 20% above the average price, the transaction couldn't be possible if subject to financing since the appraised value is not there, unless the buyer has sufficient funds to cure the appraisal contingency. When you find a property with comments such as "cash only" it is mainly for that reason, buyer/realtor aware that the property is being sold above the appraised value.

It is not the zip code which determines the deal; but the condominium you are interested on. If it is FHA approved you can finance the unit, otherwise cash has to be brought.

Hi Terri,

You can, if you are financing usually is 25%down for a condo purchase, unless you are approved for FHA ( first time home buyers) , but there are not many condos approved for FHA. For further help you can contact me directly at info@thegteamrealty.com

Yes you can, but you will have to be willing to put down 20%-35% depending on a few different factors such as the building and the appraised vs. asking price.
