Cash purchase before House ClosingWe have the clear to close, but the buyer requested a later closing so we are just waiting 2 more weeks. Now our car just kicked the bucket and we have cash to buy a new one. Cash reserves (not including the cash to close) would still look fine. We'd still have 6mo of mortgage payments on reserve. Would this botch the closing at the last minute?May 02 2014 - Boston00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
