All Cash Buyers Reappear After Pandemic
All cash buyers have all the power…or at least most of it. This article from the M Report states 31.9% of transactions through Redfin following the pandemic were paid for without financing. That’s the highest recorded figure since 2014. The factors encouraging buyers to pay with cash are different today than a year ago. Because mortgage rates are high, today’s buyers are looking to avoid loans and high monthly interest payments.
