Definition of

Liquidity

Liquidity
How quickly an asset can be turned into cash.

In fact cash is the most liquid asset.

A bank account is also very liquid, as you can (usually) get the money straight away.

But your house is NOT a very liquid asset, because it may take some time to sell it, and a rush sale can mean getting far less than you should.
