First time buyers have been having a difficult time to purchase a home due to much higher interest rates. The higher the mortgage interest rates are the smaller home that you may qualify for or even not qualify at all. This has dramatically dropped since June 2022 starting the first spike in mortgage interest rates. Now it is an affordability problem for many home buyers. It is now taken much longer to afford a home, inflation has taken over the nation even down to credit cards. With a working couple, it's nearly 100,000 income to own a decent home. Rental property has sky rocketed, which has many renters are trying and forced to improve their credit scores and keep debt down. However this is very difficult with inflation. Buyers now have come to grips and now even moving further due to remote work for affordability.
Cash offers is the best going thing and a huge game changer to avoid the bank red tape and a advantage for the sellers to purchase a home. This avoids mortgage insurance premium, inspection period, much lesser closing cost for the buyer along with a much faster closing. This type of purchase does not require a survey nor appraisal. This type of offer makes the seller day as long as neutral terms are met between both parties. Seek a trusted advisor that can negotiate this type of transaction with no loopholes. Remember cash is king in many cases.
