Help the community by answering this question:


The cash price is EXACTLY the same as the financed price. To the seller, it will ALL be cash at the closing table.

A cash offer allows you to changes the terms and conditions of your offer such as:
Quick close
No appraisal
No pre-conditions
No inspection contingency
These options can have a material value to the seller, depending on their situation. Since the 'real' seller in a short sale is the bank/investor, your offer can be presented in economic terms that will have persuasion..

If you don't want the house, go ahead and place a CASH offer that is 60% of fair market value...CASH! Then you will realize what I'm talking about. Statistically,in Florida, short sales are sold at 15% less than traditional sales....after waiting 6 to 48 months to close....and only 30% actually close as a short sale. (and they are over 80% cash purchases.)

Best of Success to you,

Hi Noel,

Have your Realtor do a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) on the property using Sold comps within a 1 mile radius of the property (the closer, the better) that have sold within the last 3 months. This will give you market value of the property. Use this as the basis for your offer. An all cash offer will be more desirable than a financed offer to the seller but other factors will be in play too (such as length of escrow, etc.).

Good luck.

Are you asking if the price of a given house will be different (i.e., "less") if
you pay cash than if you obtained a Mortgage? In most cases, that won't be true
-- from the Sellers' perspective, on the day of the Closing, it is all "cash".
On the other hand, if you and another prospective buyer offer the same price for a given
house, the buyer paying cash may have an advantage over the buyer obtaining a mortgage.

Was that what your question was?

Good luck,

In order to determine a value, review comps with your agent, recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, see what the data suggests and go from there....
