Can one use cash as a downpaymentFor the past 5 years I have been paying fairly low rent for a small 2 bdrm half of a duplex. Now came time to expand my living space inside and outside of the house. During my rent period I have accumulated enough physical gold to put a 20% downpayment on a good size house. I am starting to liquidate gold and cashing checks. My understanding is that one needs to keep money on an account for 2 months for the funds to season. I thought cash would be a simpler option so long as I keep the receipts of my gold sales, Am I missing anything here?July 12 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
