🏠  FREQUENTLY ASKED FRIDAY: How do I buy a cash-only property?

 

➡️  First, what does “cash-only” mean? It means the home listed is not in the condition to be financed under a conventional mortgage and if it can take a loan but not listed as such, it means the sellers want a cash-only offer. 

 

These homes are typically distressed properties that have been abandoned for long periods of time, condemned or have even experienced damage due to natural disasters.

 

💰  Those looking to purchase a “cash-only” property have a few options: have cash on hand to purchase in full, obtain a Hard Money Loan or to get a FHA 203k Streamline loan.

 

❗  TIP: It is also important to do a title search and to make sure the owners do in fact hold the deed to the property.

🏠  FREQUENTLY ASKED FRIDAY: Who holds my house deposit (also known as an earnest money deposit)?

 

In most circumstances – especially after the pandemic – the title company or escrow agent may hold the deposit. 

 

It is typically wired here and a receipt of the deposit is provided to your agent.

 

Once the closing documents are signed and the house is recorded with the county, then the deposit and the rest of the funds are wired to the seller. In some cases, sellers may ask for a check instead.

🏠  FREQUENTLY ASKED FRIDAY: What is an attorney review?

 

Attorney review is usually a three-day period in which either the Buyer or Seller, through their respective attorneys, can cancel the contract for any reason or no reason at all. 

 

If either the Buyer or the Seller, after reviewing the contract with their attorney, desire to modify the terms of the initial contract, either party can cancel the contract and communicate in writing the proposed changes which would make the contract acceptable.

 

This is not typically common, but it does come up and is something to be aware about.

Things to Consider when it comes to Rural vs. Urban vs. Suburban Living

 

🏠 Rural living generally refers to any dwelling or community that relates to the countryside.

👉 Pros: cost of living is typically lower, relaxed living lifestyle and small and tight-knit community

👉 Cons: fewer job opportunities, lack of public transportation and more home and property maintenance

 

🏠 Urban living generally refers to cities that are densely populated with highly built-out infrastructure.

👉 Pros: cultural hub, more job opportunities and access to public transportation

👉 Cons: cost of living can be higher, more crime and more pollution

 

🏠 Suburban living refers to residential areas that are either part of or within commuting-distance of a city.

👉 Pros: relatively affordable housing, less crime and clean and peaceful environment

👉 Cons: longer commute between home and work, limited access to public transportation and more time and money to spend on your property as a whole
