The power of a cash offer, without actually paying cash.

Our Cash Advantage™ lets you make a cash-backed offer to win the house you want. Then, we’ll help you close with a regular mortgage.

  • Stand out in a tough market. Make your offer rise above the competition with a cash-backed offer.
  • Avoid financing contingencies. By removing contingencies, your offer will be more attractive to the sellers you’re trying to win over.
  • Gain leverage. Sellers are more likely to negotiate if they feel certain you will close.
  • Ensure a guaranteed settlement date. Close with less stress when you eliminate uncertainties.

Frequently Asked Questions

No. We provide you with the ability to make a guaranteed, cash-backed offer. This gives the seller the same confidence that they get from an all cash offer.

Sellers want to be completely confident that an offer will close. With Cash Advantage™, they know financing is virtually guaranteed and settlement will occur on a specific date.

We charge nothing to apply or to qualify. You only pay the program fee of $2,500 to use our Cash Advantage™ after your cash-backed offer is accepted. 

Houwzer helps you to make a cash-backed offer. You then work with Houwzer Mortgage to have funds ready for settlement. If your financing falls through, Houwzer will honor the contract with the seller and purchase the home for the agreed-upon amount. The house will then be resold to you under the same terms and conditions as long as you close within forty-five (45) days. 

Houwzer mortgage advisors carefully vet and qualify every applicant for Cash Advantage™.  The process leaves no doubt you will qualify, which helps to guarantee the closing date.

If, through no fault of the buyer or seller, Houwzer Mortgage is unable to provide a mortgage loan commitment on the day of settlement, Houwzer will purchase the home for you and resell it to you under the same terms and conditions as long as you close within forty-five (45) days.
