Even in ideal market conditions, it can be difficult to truly be at ease when you’re entering the real estate industry as a seller. But with Ohio following the trend like other states in the country, selling in Columbus definitely sounds like a good move to make. It also has another benefit:
The Wall Street Journal reports that all-cash home purchases “are on the rise again,” and Ohio’s among the states showing the biggest increases
The trend is being buoyed “by retirees instead of pure speculators,” the newspaper says, and it signals “a shift in the way Americans view home ownership and in the mortgage market.”
During the year’s first quarter, “33% of the existing homes sold in the U.S. were purchased entirely in cash,” according to the story. “That was up from 31% for all of last year and 29% in 2012, according to a monthly survey of roughly 3,000 real estate agents commissioned by the National Association of Realtors.”
This relieves a lot of fear because it signifies more security for sellers, most especially if you’re hesitant to do some home improvements. Doing so is highly recommended because the additional value to a property lessens the time between listing your home and sealing the deal with a buyer.
