Same as Cash Guarantee

As part of Faira Premium, we are now offering a same as cash guarantee. When offers are received, they may be cash or subject to financing. Sellers sometimes miss the opportunity to take a higher offer because they prefer to take a lower cash offer. If you use this program, you can now accept an offer subject to financing with high confidence, as if it was a cash offer.
