#MarketWatchMonday Time! In February 2022, cash transactions accounted for 43.9 percent of Miami closed sales, up from 35.8 percent in February 2021. According to the most recent NAR data, cash accounts for around 25% of all home sales in the United States. The high percentage of cash buyers reflects Miami's top position as the preeminent American real estate market for foreign buyers, who tend to purchase with all cash as well as some moving from more expensive U.S. markets who can buy more with their profits from real estate sales.
