Q: How Quickly Can I Expect to Sell My House?

Here’s how long you can expect your home sale to take if you act promptly.

Sellers ask us all the time how quickly they can expect to sell their home, and here’s the answer: Assuming that you can go on the market within two weeks, you should expect a closing no more than five to six weeks out. How did we come up with that timeline? 

Let’s start at the beginning. First, we come out to your home for the listing consultation and go through all of the paperwork. If you agree to hire us, there will then be another week of collecting information from you before we go live on the market. During that time, we set up pre-inspections, have you fill out a seller’s disclosure, obtain copies of your survey, and find out if there’s anything else that needs disclosing before hitting the market. So, depending on how quickly you act, it will be one to two weeks max from the time you first meet with us to the time your listing goes live. 

Don’t be afraid that your home sale will take three months or even six months—that’s wholly unnecessary.

You should expect no fewer than 10 to 15 showings within your two weeks on the market, and for every 10 showings, we can generally expect at least one offer. You can trust that your house should be under contract two weeks after going on the market (so far, it’s been two weeks to go live and another two weeks to go under contract). 

Usually, a lender will want 30 days to process the loan and close, so that’s another four weeks right there; for this conservative estimate, we’re at two months total. If you called us right now, you could conservatively expect to be closed and funded eight weeks from today. If you’ve priced correctly and can move quicker, your timeline may be closer to six weeks. Don’t be afraid that your home sale will take three months or even six months—that’s wholly unnecessary. 

If you are thinking about making a move, please give us a call; helping sellers just like you is our passion. We hope to hear from you soon!
