These letters should show the maximum amount that you will be able to borrow, this document will be sent along with the contract for the seller to review.
  • For cash sales you must provide a proof of funds letter from your bank, showing the liquidity you have for the purchase. It must show the amount available to you to purchase the home you have written a contract for.  Showing more money is fine, less is of course is not a good idea.
  • Mortgage sales take more time than a cash sale. All will depend on how soon the title company can get the estoppel and the HOA (homeowners association)or COA s (condo association)  application acceptance period.  For cash count 1 month, for mortgage count 1 month or longer.
