Cash is King so you may have some bargaining power if you come in with an all cash offer. It depends on how long the property is on the market & how soon they want to close & how many other offers there are out there.

Like others have mentioned, after all things are considered in a contract, the one with the fewest contingencies usually looks the most appealing. Financing is a major contingency and if your able to pay all cash or have a large down payment, you definitely put yourself ahead of the competition. That being said, this does not mean you will get a steal of a deal, maybe better, but a seller will wait for financing through a lender if it means more money. If you have any other questions, want an idea of a property's value, or want to pursue putting an offer together feel free to contact me.

Take Care,

Hello kev0426
Cash in hand is always a good position to bargain from when it comes to making a real estate purchase or any purchase for that matter. Most contracts to purchase a house include a mortgage clause making it contingent on the ability of the buyer to get a mortgage. Bank mortgage terms include satisfactory borrower credit, employment and enough cash for closing costs plus a bank mortgage is also conditioned on a satisfactory appraisal report stating that the property is worth the money. Sellers will get all cash from a real estate transaction when their buyer successfully procures a mortgage. However, with all of the conditions and terms of a bank mortgage, it is not uncommon to have problems with in the mortgage process some of which can be resolved quickly, others can be painstakingly long and other might simply cause the mortgage to be rejected and then the deal falls apart. So "cash in hand" eliminates that very significant step and sometimes deadly step of the buying and selling process. As they say ..Cash is King ..when it comes to buying real estate. The buyer with cash in hand will have very very strong hand to negotiate with and huge advantage over any buyer with a mortgage contingency. I am available to represent your interest in a purchase and can be reached at 518-858-4447.
Best of luck,

Hi Kevin,
It's never possible to know exactly what a seller will accept until you put the offer in writing. Feel free to give me a call at 518-321-8355 to discuss strategy.

I'd be happy to assist you in submission of an offer. As mentioned on this thread, a buyers agent would represent your best interests and is paid by the seller. Cash offers are definitely appetizing to a seller, however, that is one of the many portions that make up the offer.

To find out, submit an offer. Terms: Cash.

If you want assistance, contact a local Realtor. If not, contact the listing agent directly with your offer. Just remember, they work for the Seller - not you!
