All-cash sales are something to note in June of 2021. It has been on the rise, with 31% of closed sales being all-cash in June 2021 compared to just 19% in June 2020. To put this into perspective, the last time all-cash sales were this high was in 2015!
There are two reasons for this increase in all-cash sales:
