Question: when buying a short sale home how long does it take to close?
Answer: – If you are the end buyer, the time it takes to close varies depending on how ready you are. It can take 3 days to 60 days depending on where you get financing and what they require. The transaction is the same as any other residential home. Typically with short sales, you’re just getting a better deal. You should be able to close within 30 days which is usually what the banks require once the short sale as been approved.
