When it comes to Santa Clarita real estate paying with cash can make a transaction move quickly and easily. When a buyer has the cash to buy a piece of real estate it can affect a contract in a positive way. Offering cash for a Santa Clarita property can be more enticing for a seller, often tempting him to accept a lower offer than he typically would do to the lack of a financing contingency and a quicker closing.
While the motto “cash is king” certainly holds true in many situations, real estate not withstanding, certain elements of a real estate transaction should not be overlooked. Typically a lender will have an appraisal completed prior to completing a real estate transaction. In the case of a cash deal it is still in a buyer’s best interest to do the same in order to know that he is paying a fair market price. Other elements of a contract should also be adhered to, like inspection objections, disclosures and the like.
