How much less can you offer when paying cash for a house?
A good reason why you may want to offer below 5% is when you’re paying with cash (although companies who offer sellers cash for their home will typically offer 65% below market price)..
Are cash offers on houses better?
Sellers generally love getting a cash offer, well, as long as it’s not a silly one. And buyers like to make them because they think it will be more attractive to the seller and save them some money on the purchase price of a home, which sometimes it can.
What is considered a lowball offer?
A low-ball offer refers to an offer that is far less than the seller’s asking price or is deliberately too low, as a means of starting negotiations. To low ball also means to throw out a purposely lower than reasonable number to see how the seller will react.
Should I accept a lower cash offer?
Remember, the proceeds you receive at the closing are in the same dollars no matter who writes the check- a bank or cash buyer- so why not take the higher amount from the bank? As long as you do your due diligence and understand why you made the decision to accept one offer over the other, you really can’t go wrong.
