Cash Buyers Overtaking the Market

This from the Wall Street Journal Blog today: WSJ Blog Link: Half of Homes Being Purchased With Cash


This is happening in our backyard as well!  As I look at the properties we have sold in the past year and what is in escrow now, a large portion of them are all-cash transactions.  Who says there is no money out there?  I think it’s just been sitting on the sidelines waiting for the market to settle.  But why not take advantage of these historically low interest rates?  Well, I think they are presenting offers all-cash to beat the competition and will extract the equity later, if needed.
