Mine are actually up! I just Closed 2, high-end properties this week and both were cash transactions. 

There are many people who realize that mortgage money is cheap but, prefer the debt-free lifestyle. There's something to be said for that, I suppose but, I prefer a mortgage and keep my investments growing and my tax deductions!

As prices increase, smart investors will wait, when the next shift occurs the investors will be back with their cash.

I can't remember the last time I saw a cash sale. In 20 years in Charlotte, I think I've had two... one for a $30K condo that could not be financed and one for a lot of land of around $125K. Beyond that, nothing. (Well, except maybe for our own purchase of our first home in Charlotte, which we lated financed in any case.)

Most people purchasing with cash, atleast around here, are the same usual suspects. Money makes money & the big players are always in the game.

Just about all of my purchases are with cash.  It is getting harder to find worthy properties though.  Due to limited inventory complete "shitholes" are going at retail.

I have not checked for 2017 but that is on my list. I do not think they are as prevalent. I had one the other day & the people STILL thought they would get a 10% discount.
