#MarketWatchMonday Cash sales accounted for 43.8 percent of Miami closed sales in April 2022, up from 37.8 percent in April 2021. About 26% of U.S. home sales are made in cash, according to the latest NAR statistics. The high percentage of cash purchasers reflects Miami's top position as the leading American real estate market for international buyers, who tend to buy with all cash, as well as others migrating from more costly U.S. areas who may buy more with their real estate sales earnings. Cash sales made up 52.4 percent of all existing condo sales in Miami and 28.5 percent of single-family deals.
