What % is the norm to be taken off the listing price if I can pay cash?

I would think it would be what ever the seller is willing to accept.  Not sure paying cash for a home is much of an incentive to the seller.

I agree with DSTexas, no advantage and no discount for cash.
Not from my research....sellers appreciate the simplicity. I was looking for knowledge not judgement.

No judgment here; never heard of cash discount in California or Virginia or Hawaii, the only places I've purchased homes.

The only advantage I can think of (I've sold two homes so far), would be consideration with multiple offers.  If one was offering to buy with cash at a slightly lower offer, I might consider it over someone who is financing only because the offer would not include the standard finance contingency clause.  But again, this probably would only be a consideration if there were multiple offers.
