What does it mean for a seller to only be sharing their home with preapproved or cash buyers?


In traditional real estate, homes are typically opened up to anyone and everyone during tours and open houses. Sellers experience people coming into their home that are not actually able to purchase it. Aalto changes all this.

At Aalto, we give sellers the option to share only with pre-approved or cash buyers so that they can focus on spending their time and energy with buyers who are serious about making an offer.
