NAF Cash Can Turn You into a Cash Buyer

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.

*According to a study from researchers at the University of California - San Diego, cash buyers have paid about 11% less than using a mortgage.
