But would it surprise you to know that 47% of those sales were cash? Valley Buyers purchased over 47,400 single family properties with no third party financing in 2011.

The $100,000 and under price point accounted for 63% of the total cash sales, with another 24% in the $100,001-$200,000 range. Further analysis of the cash transactions shows 48% were foreclosures and 24% were short sales, accounting for a 72% dis-tressed property make up of the cash sales.
