My brother-in-law in Wlinter Haven is in your same situation and it has been more than week thus far for him.
Be patient... this process takes time. Our best advice is to have your real estate agent make regular contact at least a couple of times daily to help expadite the process.
Hope things work out for you.

Concentrate on what you are buying, review the inspection, know, what and how much it will cost, to be repaired.
