Did they not have an appraisal contingency? All cash buyers are about 45% of buyers here right now, but a lot still ask for appraisals. Congrats on the offer, though! That’s so great!!

Congratulations! You can’t beat a cash deal with no appraisal. I own a real estate franchise and had a condo listed that had multiple offers in one day and the cash deal won. It was also priced higher than previous sales but had a number of pluses over other units in the complex. It was helpful for the entire complex’s values since the higher price this one got can used as a comp for others, yet we didn’t have to worry about appraising.

That is great!

 

My parents did the same thing thing summer, had a number in mind, met with realtors, and listed FSBO at about 20K more.  They had an offer in 24 hours!  It wasn’t a cash buy but it wasn’t contingent on any other sale either. 

I agree, its great to just get it off your hands!

@NAvery:  OMG, congrats!!  How exciting 🙂  I, too, got an offer on my condo this weekend, which has on the market for 4 months. I never thought it would budge ‘so quickly’ in this market.  I can only imagine how you must be feeling!!

Sadly, I am taking a loss, but as I see it I will make up that money quickly since i will not be paying a mortgagte/main. fee every month, in a condo I barely live in (moved in with SO).  Pending no issues with inspection, I have to be out in early January.

I will send you luck on a quick process, and an easy transition!

Wow, that’s quick…so awesome! And even moreso that it was a cash buyer!
