If a bank appraises a house on May 1st, let's say, what's the maximum number of days allowed until closing?

You should close as soon as the loan is ready to close, things happen in the real world, the seller could die, go belly up or get sued for divorce just to name a few examples. Or your lender could close up shop, get my drift? The longer you delay the higher the odds are the deal will never close.

Appraisals are usually good for 90 days. Unless it's a short sale or foreclosure where the bank requires a closing to occur in a certain number of days (this would be addressed in the approval letter or addendums), there is no maximum timeframe outside of what the buyer and seller agree upon.

Is this for a Short Sale? If it was a BPO, then it's good for about 90 days depending on the lender. If it is for a loan, then it's up to the bank and their policies.
