Today I wanted to take some time to talk about a common question I’m asked: “When can I close on my home sale?”
Do you want to know how much cash your house is worth today?
Today we’re going to talk about a question that I often receive from sellers, which is: “How fast can I close?”
In theory, everybody wants to close quickly. In New York, it usually takes a minimum of two to four weeks to close on your home. During this time a contract and title report will be obtained, and we’re then able to close on the home.
Usually when I tell people that we can close in that amount of time, they tell me they need more time to get their belongings packed and find another home to move into.
Given all the various reasons why a seller might need to extend the closing, we typically do not close in two to four weeks. This isn’t because of us, but because of the seller’s unique situation.
If the seller is ready to move and doesn’t need more time, then it’s possible to close in two to four weeks. We like to offer the seller the ability to close at their convenience. This is different than a typical real estate deal, where they may be looking at a minimum of a six to 12 month closing period.
If you have any questions about this topic or you’re looking to sell your home for cash, give me a call. I’d be happy to help.
