Property expert Haesley Cush explains how to get the sellers in your corner. Pic Mark Cranitch.LIKE most things even with property you can get a better deal for cash. And no don’t worry you don’t have to turn up with a suitcase full of $100 bills to do it.I always find it bizarre that people will exhaust themselves driving around town month after month heading out to open houses, chewing through terabytes of data viewing properties online and spending their precious weekends with agents instead of friends and family all to find a property that they don’t know whether they can buy or not.In what other purchase do you choose first and then work out whether you can buy it second.I’m not even referring to affordability, I understand people buy things all the time they can’t afford and shouldn’t buy.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 3:17Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -3:17 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels576p576p480p480p256p256p228p228pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

The idea of walking in to Myer and trying on clothes every weekend for three months, building a relationship with the sales person, finally choosing the outfit and asking them to please take it off the rack for a few weeks while you go and find out if you can get the money to buy it. Crazy right?This is a weekly occurrence in the residential real estate world.When a buyer needs to check their finance, we call that a “subject to finance” contract. But when a buyer has been pre-approved by the bank and does not need their approval, we call that a “cash contract’’.You can see the attraction to a seller.This week I negotiated a sale where one offer was $1,115,000 subject to finance and the other was $1,105,000 cash (meaning not subject to finance). The owner took the cash offer. That’s a $10,000 saving. I’ve seen even larger savings over the years.In most cases it costs nothing to get pre-approved, it saves you wasting your time viewing properties you can’t buy and it saves owners taking their properties off the market and stressing over a sale that may not happen.

MORE: Watch live MLB games all season long on fuboTV (7-day free trial) Leake then allowed a walk to Kevan Smith but recovered to retire the next three batters and complete a 10-0 shutout. He struck out Mike Trout to end the game.Leake needed just 98 pitches to blank the Halos in his second complete game and first shutout of the season, meaning he fashioned a “Maddux” (as in Greg Maddux), a shutout in fewer than 100 pitches. Had Leake completed the perfecto, it would have been the first in the majors since his Seattle teammate Felix Hernandez threw one Aug. 15, 2012, vs. the Rays.Leake did not get out of the first inning in his last start, which occurred exactly one week ago. He was facing the Angels in the club’s first home game since the death of pitcher Tyler Skaggs. Leake allowed seven runs (four earned) and eight hits in two-thirds of an inning.Angels pitchers Taylor Cole and Felix Pena combined to throw a no-hitter that night. Mike Leake had almost the perfect comeback to his previous outing.The Mariners right-hander came up three outs short of throwing the 24th perfect game in MLB history Friday night. The Angels’ Luis Rengifo ended the bid with a single to lead off the ninth inning.
