Over the last decade, the portion of all-cash sales has fluctuated wildly, largely on account of the initial expansion of the housing bubble and its subsequent collapse. Looking at the graph below, generated using Redfin data, it’s easy to see that prior to the last half of 2008, cash sales typically hovered between 25 to 30 percent. However, during the housing boom, an influx of investors looking to make a quick dollar off ascending home prices began...read more
