Well, by now you know as long as the buyer and the seller are in agreement (and lending is not an issue) you certainly can close escrow in less than 30 days.
There is one thing to look out for, though. Make sure you give yourself enough time to complete any inspections-and request and have completed any repairs-on the property. Making sure you know what you're getting, by having apppropriate inspections, is more important than ever. This is because so many of the homes for sale have been either neglected or damaged prior to being foreclosed on.

Both buyer and seller must agree to the closing date and all disclosures and other documents must be completed before escrow can close and record.
If you are currently working on a transaction, discuss this with your agent. If not, please feel free to call me at 661-472-9058. Visit my website to see more of my listings.
As the buyer, you are certainly entitled to request an earlier close of escrow. Typically the escrow period is negotiated as part of the purchase contract. Sometimes there are compelling reasons for either party to want to delay the close of escrow. Sometimes, depending on how complicated the transaction is, it may not be possible to close escrow in as little as 30 days.
If you are currently involved in a trancsaction, your real estate agent should be able to assist you with these quesions. If not, I would be happy to speak with you about these or other questions you may have. Feel ree to call me at 661.375.REAL (7325) or email Sally @HomeSalesSally.com
Yes you can close earlier, if everyone is in agreement to do so. Normally, sellers are ok with moving it up as they get their money sooner. However, if they haven't moved out, make sure they can close and give you keys on earlier date.
