YOU SHOULD START LOOKING NOW
Timing in real estate is everything. It’s no different when you’re on the fence about buying a home – or you’re ready to go, but not sure when to start!
In a nutshell, the home buying process can take anywhere from 6 weeks to 12 months or more. The time it takes to buy a home is more so based on your timeline. If you wanted to be in a home as quickly as possible, you’d want to contact us right now.
The timeline to close on your new home, in general, is 4-6 weeks if you’re getting a loan. That’s the time from acceptance of your offer to the keys in your hand.
As you’ve heard me say before, the first thing you should do is get in touch with a realtor. If you contact us, at a minimum we’ll get you set up on a home search. Even if you’re 3,6, or 12 months out. Let’s start looking at houses that come and go, pricing, days on market, and more.
There’s a lot to learn about the home buying process. If you have plans to buy a home in the next year or two, get in touch and we’ll start you through the education process so that you buy your new home simply.1
