Sage Realty, a company owned by a Main Line Realtor® practicing mainly buyer Agency, Announces 5 Great Reasons to Buy Homes with Cash

Homes with CashNovember 15, 2016 – Wayne, PA – As experienced Realtors® in the Main Line Philadelphia area, Linda Walters and Tracey Carney of Sage Realty want home buyers to know that paying for a home with cash can have significant benefits.

The most immediate and up-front benefit is that of price. Home sellers are almost always willing to accept a lower-than-sticker-price offer, if that offer is backed up by cash on the table. In fact, per industry statisticians at RealtyTrac, all-cash buyers pay an average 23 percent less than those buying on credit.

Paying cash also brings several other substantial advantages:

  • A shorter closing period. Without having to wait for loan approval, a month or more can be cut from the overall sales period.
  • No chance of loan denials. Often, a range of reasons unrelated to a buyer’s credit may be given for a home loan refusal.
  • Security. A home which is owned outright from the start can never be repossessed.
  • Instant home equity. Every dollar paid for the home instantly becomes part of its equity, with few or no liabilities attached to the property.

For these reasons and more, Sage Realty recommends thatclients buy with cash when possible. As a leading buyer agency in the Main Line PA area, Sage Realty has helped hundreds of buyers over the years find their dream homes, and understands the particulars of the industry well. Sage Realty wants to find the best price possible for every purchased home. Contact Sage Realty directly for more information.

Featured Testimonial

I moved to PA from Washington State and learned that realty is local. There were things that I thought I knew about buying a house previously but boy was I wrong. Linda was very patient with me but also did not hold back when she saw potential problems, and always made sure I had all the information I needed before making a decision and didn’t belittle concerns to just get a sale. Above all else, and this was the most important thing to me, Linda has a high ethical standard, is very transparent in her approach and is someone I trusted making one of the biggest decisions of my life. – A.
