If I'm Paying Cash For A Home In Fort Wayne, Do I Get A Discount On Price?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Malcom & Schlueter, Realtors (260)704-0843


The short answer is simply NO.  Not really.  


Last year I was writing an offer for a brand new Lancia Home.  I received a call from the listing agent telling me that they just got another offer in, so bring our highest and best.  

I told my buyer that the home was priced well, and recommended writing a full price offer if they wanted it.  Now that is something I rarely do!  

He gave me a weird look and said "If I'm paying cash, I think I can get it for a discount."  

I went on to explain that most sellers today are more concerned with their bottom dollar than what type of financing the buyer is using.  If the other offer was better and an FHA loan, they would probably take that offer.  

He understood and we wrote the offer, got it accepted, and closed a few weeks later.  They were and still are very happy there.  


Just because you are paying cash for a home doesn't necessarily mean you will get a discount.

The truth of the matter is that if it really is a good deal some buyers will even pay more than asking price regardless of how they are paying for it!

In most cases, CASH is best but you are right... if the seller is getting their money, they dont care whether its paid in cash or with a loan. Either way, the seller is getting a check!
