Hi George,

I agree with them all below. Usually cash is approx 30 days and financing 45-60.

It all depends on how much your title company and realtor push to get the deal closed for you and push through inspections and contingencies.

I am more than happy to talk to you if you need any advice and if you would rather speak to a non-realtor, Tri County Title are excellent on (352) 753-4411.

Many thanks

I agree with both Ken and Nancy between 45 and 60 days on financing.
If you're paying cash it depends on how quickly the homeowner can move out of the home.

There are cases with cash deals that may be 2 wks or so, depending on the title search. Typically recently it's around 45 days. It depends alot on the type of funding, & how well you & your realtor follow up.

Speaking as a Realtor (living and specializing in The Villages) working for an independent Broker (NOT The Villages) it all depends. 1. Agreed upon time frame of the buyer and seller. 2. Ability of the buyer to obtain a loan if necessary and lenders requirements. 3. Timeliness of obtaining an appraisal if a loan is required. Some types of loans can take longer than others.

Typically 45-60 days is reasonable - however, I have closed CASH deals in less than 5 days.
