 Real Estate Cash Buyers in South Florida

 

Buyers who pay Cash for their Property purchases in South Florida instead of Financing their Property purchases with a Mortgage continue to represent a significant portion of South Florida’s Real Estate Buyers.

Note:  Cash paid for Property purchases is paid in the form of Funds wired to a Bank Account, typically the Bank Account of a Title Company or Attorney, and then wired to the Property Seller’s Bank Account at the time of Closing.

Below are details about Cash property Transactions that were conducted in Broward County during the Months of January – June of 2018, per MLS Residential Property sales Records for Single Family Homes, Condos and Townhomes.  I will include information for Palm Beach County and Miami-Dade County in separate posts to follow later.
