NAF Cash Can Turn You into a Cash Buyer

Explore the latest homebuying trends in your state
with your interactive map

Buying in cash means convenience, certainty, and may mean cost savings too. In fact, buying in cash may help you save up to 11% over those using a traditional mortgage. With NAF Cash, you can make a competitive, true cash offer that is not contingent on financing and close in little as seven days without having to sell your current home first.

Source: This dataset combines data from Public Records and MLS transactions. The data lists the number of all-cash purchases and the total number of home purchases nationwide including the most recent five quarters of data. (Cash purchase defined when a Property Sold record does not have a Mortgage Balance.) Data coverage is limited by available MLS coverage. Certain geographies like Georgia (especially Central GA), South Dakota and Vermont were impacted by this data availability. Land sales and manufactured (MFR) home sales are excluded from the dataset.


Are You Ready?

At New American Funding, we believe that every person deserves a clear path to achieving their dream of homeownership. So, we created the Pathway to Homeownership initiative to alleviate some of your financial worries.

What is the Pathway to Homeownership Initiative?

The Pathway to Homeownership offers qualified borrowers in select areas up to $8,000 in assistance. These funds are not a loan that needs to be repaid and are available to first-time homebuyers in designated areas.

This program can also potentially be combined with other down payment assistance programs to offer you even more support as you build the life of your dreams.
