10 Markets Where More Buyers Bring Cash



Home buyers who require financing for their home purchase can struggle to compete against buyers who have offers of all-cash.

Where are all-cash deals the most prevalent? Cash deals represented 80 percent of home sales in June in Vermont; 58 percent in Nevada; 57 percent in Florida, and 51 percent in New York, according to RealtyTrac. Cash deals represent a very small percentage in Texas, Utah, and New Mexico.

The markets with the most all-cash transactions tend to have a high number of foreclosures and depressed home prices, which attracts investors and private equity firms, according to RealtyTrac.

The following 10 metros had 40 percent or more all-cash deals out of the total home sales in June, according to RealtyTrac:

  1. Miami/Ft. Lauderdale: 64%
  2. Las Vegas:      62%
  3. Tampa,      Fla.: 58%
  4. Detroit:      56%
  5. Orlando:      53%
  6. New York:      49%
  7. New      Orleans: 43%
  8. Memphis:      43%
  9. Jacksonville,      Fla.: 42%
  10. Atlanta:      42%
