New private lending company led by Founder and President Andrew Weissman slashes closing times and cuts paperwork for borrowers seeking quick closings and unconventional deals

In a Market Where Cash is King, Lightspeed Lending Delivers Fast Access to Capital

South Florida Investors Need Cash More than Investors Anywhere Else

BOCA RATON, Fla.  — There is no disputing that more than ever, cash is king in real estate. A recent article in Housing Wire doesn’t pull any punches: “Cash buyers are scooping up homes like mad,” blared the headline. Redfin reports that in 2021, 30 percent of home purchases nationwide have been cash deals.

Think that sounds high? That number is even higher in South Florida. West Palm Beach tops the list: fully 52.6 percent of the metro area’s home sales in 2021 have been in cash. Redfin real estate agent Dina Blau, who is based in West Palm Beach, says that the area is no stranger to second-home buyers who put up cash, but this year that trend has skyrocketed as homeowners from the Northeast sold their properties and headed south with their pockets full of cash.

In May, Miami just experienced its best real estate sales month in history, with cash deals representing 38.9 percent of Miami closed sales in May 2021, compared to 25.9 percent in May 2020. Condo sales notched even higher: 48.3 percent of all Miami condo sales were in cash.

But what if you don’t have the cash on hand? How do you compete? Lightspeed Lending provides the answer.
