How does a Cash Buyer's name not show in county records?

It is possible that they recorded the deed under an entity name, or transferred the title into an entity before listing the property. Or, perhaps the listing agent made a mistake on the input of the listing.

Depends on how the buying entity is recorded on title.

You can buy as a LLC as long as the operating agreement reflects ownership and how its held.

If you had to make a claim to title on the warranty deed, I'd think it'd have to come from the LLC (or whatever entity) rather than an individual since the LLC would be the named insured (for lack of a better term).

If you were selling and that LLC is still the owner, you'd need to give title the operating agreement again. If you want to change ownership mid-stream, you can create a Bargain-and-Sale deed (in OR) that would accomplish that.
