Hi Susanne,

The asset requirements for Laguna Woods Village will be the same with an all cash purchase or a loan. You will still need to show $36,000 in annual income and personal assets must be equal to the total purchase price of the coop plus $125,000 liquid, marketable or income producing assets. Sometimes there are waivers but these are very, very rare and require significant assets.

An all cash offer may help you get a better price on the home. If you have the cash and a 30 day escrow, this combination may appeal to some sellers.

If you have any other questions, please call me or email me at lisa.mills@century21.com.

Unfortunately the real answer is there is no impact. I've been battling for years to have the HOA financial requirements totally dismissed - but they have actually increased them. If I can help you further, contact me.

Hello Suzanne;
I am in a battle right now against other agents over a property and I am representing a buyer. He is paying all cash and the big advantage is the escrow can close in 30 days. Co-ops with loans are a minimum of 60 days and often take longer. If the seller has a property that has been on the market for a while, a cash offer becomes very attractive and may help to negotiate a better price or help my buyer beat the competition.

None, unless you have credit or personal issues that prevent you from getting a loan.
