A New Way to Compete With Cash Buyers: Meet Our Value Assurance Program

The phrase “cash is king” has dominated the real estate market in recent years. Nationally, more than 36% of single-family homes and condos were cash deals in 2022, according to an analysis by property data provider Attom


  • Are you still struggling to compete against cash offers?
  • Are you losing out on homes after being hesitant to waive an appraisal contingency?  
  • Are you concerned bidding above the asking price may prevent you from obtaining a mortgage? 


You don’t have to sacrifice your sanity to compete. The Value Assurance program helps put the power back in your hands when bidding on a property. 


How Does It Work?

The Value Assurance program guarantees the value of a specific property for underwriting purposes. While an appraisal is still required, we use an Automated Valuation Model (AVM) to generate data from previous home sales to create a reliable estimate of a property’s value.


When used in tandem with our credit approval, our borrowers are empowered to bid with full confidence in their financial standing and appraisal findings. If the home doesn’t appraise to the projected value, we will still honor the amount determined by the AVM and the Value Assurance program.
