The percentage of all-cash home sale
transactions declined for the 25th consecutive month in January,
falling to a 38.9 percent share.
CoreLogic said that this was a 2.6 percent decrease from January 2014
when cash sales accounted for 41.4 percent of sales.
Cash sales peaked in January 2011 at a 46.5
percent share, close to double the share prior to the housing crisis. CoreLogic said that if cash sales continue to
fall at the same rate it did in January it will reach the “normal” rate of 25
percent in mid-2018.
