Absolutely. We have new homes ready to occupy and reslale opportunities that are vacant and available. Normal contract to close is 30-45 days and if the property is vacant and the buyer pre-approved can be done in about 15 days giving time for appraisal, survey and title work. New home builders can also move quickly, usually within 30 days of the home is completely finished.

Yes it can happen.

You need to be careful, there are a lot of houses on the market but you need to select by 2 criteria; 1. the home you like can not be a bank owned or a short sale because they can take months to close and 2. it should be vacant because the homeowner should have moved on and not contingent on the homeowner finding home of choice. The 2 criteria could seriously reduce the available inventory. I can help, I have area and relocation experience.

It sure can be done. Right now there are a lot of homes for sale w/ a large percentage that are vacant. The hardest thing you will have to do is decide which house is the best for you. After that most lenders are able to get the loan done in as little as 20days.

Absolutely. The average time between contract ratification (when a buyer(s) and seller(s) have come to an agreement of terms and conditions and the contract has been signed and delivered to both parties) and settlement date is 30 to 45 days.

If it's less time than that though and assuming the seller(s) agree, make sure that the lender, appraiser and all other parties involved in the transaction can get everything done in time. The biggest reason for settlements to be delayed is the lender not having the loan docs completed and over to the settlement company in time.
