Sometimes sellers want to avoid the public exposure of a traditional sale. Keeping the property clean for multiple showings and open houses can be a real hassle. Recently, with the onset of the Covid-19 Pandemic, many sellers prefer to minimize the number of strangers, and possible carriers of the virus, from entering the home. Also, If the property has fallen into disrepair, not only may it not qualify for lender financing, but can be a source of embarrassment for the seller. In these situations, the seller may elect to sell via a cash buyer.
