How Long Does It Take to Close on a House?

House Key

This article will broadly lay out the purchase and underlying mortgage process and timetable associated with it.

When a purchase agreement is fully executed between a buyer and seller it is stipulated in the contract of all conditions and contingencies associated with it. Examples of such items are typically a home inspection contingency and typically a mortgage contingency. It is also clearly noted that the estimated closing will occur on or before a specified date. Typically, it is around 30 days from the acceptance date but this can vary depending on what the buyer and seller agree to. Estimated closing dates could be as far out as 60 days or longer.

In a normal closing period of 30 days typically the home inspection occurs within 3-7 days and the mortgage approval closer to 3 – 4 weeks.
