Become a cash buyer!
The real estate market is more competitive than ever before. It’s not uncommon for homes to have dozens of showings and multiple offers. With all that competition, you need something that sets you apart from the rest.
8z has created a solution to give you an advantage: becoming a cash buyer.
8z’s Cash Buyer program is one of the only Colorado-based cash buyer programs, which means you’re working with local mortgage and real estate experts throughout the entire process. We understand the ultra-competitive Colorado market better than anyone and we know what it takes to win your dream home.
Our exclusive 8z Cash Buyer program provides funding for you to make an all-cash offer on a new home, giving you the highest chance of success for a winning bid. Clients who use 8z Cash Buyer usually pay less for their house and get their offers accepted more often than mortgage-contingent offers. The program simply charges a 1% convenience fee. You should expect to save about 1-2% of additional home equity by securing your new home on average two months faster than with a traditional loan, which more than makes up for the fee.
Here’s how it works in 5 easy steps!
Get pre-funded with 8z Mortgage and 8z Offers
8z Mortgage and 8z Offers work in tandem to make sure you are set up with your maximum offer price as well as the pre-approval for your home loan.
Find your new home
This is the fun part! You can shop for your new home, knowing you have the advantage of a cash offer in your back pocket.
Make your cash offer
You have no client obligation until this step, which means you can shop without feeling pressured. Once you make your offer, you’ll make a 2.5% deposit to 8z Offers, which is in lieu of earnest money.
Move into your new home and buy it back
You’ll get to live in your new home while you work with 8z Mortgage to buy back your home from 8z Offers (usually in two weeks or less). You’ll pay a prorated rate of deferred occupancy (DOC) cost for the days you live in your new home.
Close on your new home
You’ll close on your new home and receive your deposit back, minus the DOC and the 1% convenience fee, which is typically less than the deposit - you’ll get money back after closing!
