After everything's been negotiated, including any necessary repairs, you're really just waiting for your "closing" date. In a typical transaction, all the previous steps in this process could happen within a span of about 10 days; however, if you're getting a loan to buy the house, it'll be at least 30 more days before you can "close" and take ownership of the house.
During this time, your lender will be conducting their own inspection of the house and you'll be wrapping up any loose ends with them, the Title Company will be conducting research and coordinating tasks, and the Seller will be vacating the house.
After the property is vacant, we'll conduct a final "walkthrough inspection" together. During this inspection, we'll be ensuring that the house is in the expected condition and that nothing crazy happened (such as the Seller taking all of the light fixtures with them---it happens!). If anything is not as it should be, we still have a chance to address it before you close on your new home.
