Ginger Harper - Just went into contract yesterday on a multiple offer deal.  Why? CASH and Full Price.  An argument can be made that all deals are cash but I argue that loans mean necessary contingencies! Dodd-Frank means -  add 3 days if you make a change!! Sellers will take the cash offer over any loan.  What I won't say is that a low ball cash offer will win out over a PreQual.

I'm a mortgage lender so this is a no brainer, I like to work with folks that come to me in advance and let me do a pre approval letter for them.   It makes it easier on my Realtors too so they like it as well.   Cash buyers tend to be more demanding

Cash is easier but sometimes cash buyers think they should get a big discount for cash. The seller doesn’t care.

I list and sell a lot of REO homes and work with a lot of cash buyers, so a cash buyer with no contingencies is always best. Pre approved buyers make up teh rest of my sales, and although taking more time, it is more rewarding to them when we close

'CASH' buyers usually are looking for 'deals' - difficult to get it in this market.

I like cash buyers - They can close quickly and that appeals to sellers.  I do want to qualify this with "reasonable cash buyers"  not the kind that think cash qualifies them to a 40%+ discount off the market price.
