A trend in home purchases are becoming a common occurrence in South Florida. RealtyTrac data says many people are switching from financing to all-cash deals for their homes.
In the first quarter of 2014, 67% of sales for new and existing home purchases in South Florida were all-cash deals, according to RealtyTrac data.
South Florida ranked second place in the United States for all-cash deals, with only the Cape Coral-Fort Myers area higher at 74% all-cash purchases.
Furthermore, seven Florida metropolitan areas ranked in the top seven spots for the highest percentage of all cash deals for homes.
