What’s The Typical Amount of Time From Contract To Closing?

   What’s the typical amount of time it takes from contract to closing when buying real estate in Charlotte NC?  It depends, since that’s a negotiating point in the real estate contract terms when buying a home in Charlotte NC. 

  Typically though, the length of time from contract to closing on a Charlotte NC home can range from 45 to 60 days from the time a full Charlotte NC real estate purchase contract is finalized (in writing!!!).   Currently, 45-60 days is more common than in the past due to financing considerations and length of time for the mortgage process to be fully completed.

  For buyers considering purchasing a home in Charlotte NC, the closing date and length of time between contract and closing on a Charlotte NC home can frequently be influenced by an upcoming end of a lease or a deadline to have possession of the Charlotte NC home (buyer’s don’t always get possesssion of the Charlotte NC home at the closing table).

   During the contract to closing process when buying a home in Charlotte NC it’s a path filled with deadlines and duties for buyer AND seller of a home in Charlotte NC.  Everything from inspections, any negotiated repairs, and oh the minor detail of obtaining financing for the Charlotte NC home purchase!

  The length of time between contract and closing should work for and be realistic for buyer, seller and the buyer’s lender.  As with many many aspects of buying a home in Charlotte NC, it’s not as simple as a generic or “standard” one-size-fits all approach to length of time from contract to closing.  It’s most certainly one of a myriad of negotiation points when buying a home in Charlotte NC.
