“The Cash Society”

    “The Cash Society”





I do have another question for you. Is there any way we can utilize cash saved to purchase a home? In addition to what we have in the bank?




I am asked this question more times than you can imagine. Just know that cash cannot be used when it comes to the purchase of a home.


As I work with a client during the pre-qualification process, I always bring up cash. I advise clients to get these funds into their bank accounts if the intent is to use cash as part of a purchase.


If these funds are in an account for over 60 days and these dollars are not part of two bank statements, all should be good.

I don't know how difficult it is to deposit that cash in the bank and get a proof of funds and send it to your loan officer who will in turn verify the funds

I have seen issues before about cash and where did it come from

Good morning Joe. Not as big an issue today as it once was. The issue is seasoning. Years ago it was a huge problem! Enjoy your day!

I think putting cash under the mattress is very questionable about the possible legality of it.

I would put the cash in a high-yield savings account. Barclays online banking offers rates over 2%, much better than you would get at a typical bank.
