In Silicon Valley, many buyers are foreign and can't qualify for a traditional mortgage, so cash is their best option.

Absolutely! It's currently very low interest rates. That means cheap money. It all depends what your goals are? Your plans on the next move etc. Its a very individual decision

Mostly for the following three reasons:
To invest the capital elsewhere-Earning ability
Leverage on property-Little invested with appreciation
Tax interest
