I would suggest you look at your purchase and sale agreement. Many times it's the day of closing the buyer takes possession. Years ago it was common for the seller to stay up to 3 days following the closing but there was a lot complications and insurance issues since the buyer held the policy on the home. Talk with your Realtor to confirm the status of your contract, it should be spelled out black & white.

Great question! I think what you are asking is how long do the sellers stay in the house after the purchase by the homebuyer has closed. Normally, the seller of the house must be vacated from the house on the day of closing which is the time you get the keys. There are other options in a purchase and sale agreement such as "negotiable" in which you and your agent would negotiate with the seller and their agent on a time that works for everyone. A real estate transaction is completely negotiable from when the buyer gets to move in, to what furniture stays. Everything is negotiable which is why it is important to have a realtor that you trust. Hope this helps! If you need any more information, please feel free to contact me at 360-609-0086.

In a t ypical scenario, after an offer is made and accepted...it takes about 30 days to do all the necessary paperwork, loans and transfer of title, exchange of money, etc. allow 30-45 days.
Once all the documents are signed and closing occurs...that is negotiable, from ON RECORDING, to a length of time agreeable to both parties, but SELDOM more than 5 days without a leaseback occupancy agreement.
If you are referring to a short sale...you made an offer, the seller accepted...NOW the bank has to approve it and it could take 60 days....or even 6 months.
if you are talking about a foreclosure sale....at the court house steps, ...then I believe there is a 20 day court order vacate notice to the seller.
If you are involved in a transaction .....consult your realtor. they are best suited to advise/inform you of the various status, conditions and phases, relative to your transaction. YOUR REALTOR, guides you through every step and loophole, to navigate what are often complicated transactions.
In todays market...its imperative to HIRE A REALTOR...even in a ForSaleByOwner. To be sure
A). The seller has the legal right to sell.
B), The title can be cleared for the transaction
C). The purchase and sale agreement is on a legally binding contract
D), your earnest money didnt just go in their pocket.
There are many cons and games being played, homes being returned to the bank, sellers preying on inexperienced buyers.
So....while your question didnt reveal the conditions of your transaction, every one is different, with many times 12 professionals each doing a segment of the transaction, to get to "handing you the keys".
You may now be more confused than before....so if you need a little support and assistance, CALL a REALTOR...
