rva: CASH IS KING - 10/06/16 10:44 PM
Can You Buy With Cash & THEN Get A Mortgage? This is a great competitive edge that many investors use.  With inventory low, especially this time of year, having the cash advantage can mean you get the house you want. Sellers don't necessarily have to take the better offer if the buyer hasn't been approved for a loan yet, they may be looking for easy and fast.  And that's why cash is king.

In competitive markets, cash is king. But coming up with the full purchase price of a home … (3 comments)
