If you are merely going to sell the property, there is probably NO gestation period which should affect your sale, except possibly if the loan is FHA, when it could affect your buyer, for the 3 months or so, after it has funded. Bear in mind, I'm not certain on that point - and this should not be considered an authoritative opinion.
Good luck in finding your answers.
As we do not see the loan docs and know your intentions it is hard to give any further advice!
Your lender and/or your Real Estate Attorney are your best sources and depending on what you do
thereafter you may also want to consult a tax accountant....
Good Luck! I hope that some of our advice will help you to get the answers you need to proceed with your plans.

Looks like you are asking about selling your property. If so, you can buy today & sell tomorrow, you can even sell the property the same day you buy it, if that can be arranged.
Good luck on your sale,

I suggest you re read the loan documents and or call the lender and ask the above question. The broker Thom gave you good advice. You might want to consult with an attorney if you do not want to call the lender and cannot find the terms in the loan papers. Check the numbers on the bottom of the documents to confirm you have all the papers.
Wishing you the Best,

$250,000 Exclusion on the Sale of a Main Home
Individuals can exclude up to $250,000 in profit from the sale of a main home (or $500,000 for a married couple) as long as you have owned the home and lived in the home for a minimum of two years. Those two years do not need to be consecutive. In the 5 years prior to the sale of the house, you need to have lived in the house for at least 24 months in that 5-year period. In other words, the home must have been your principal residence.
If your concern is whether there is an early payoff penalty with your refi loan, you will need to look at your loan docs to see what is specified.
You loan docs will likely have language that states how long you have to stay in the property. If you are taking an "Owner Occupied" / Primary Residence loan and you are already talking about "staying or not" I suspect you have other plans in mind. Just remember, if you know what your intentions are and sign loan docs that state something different, that's called LOAN FRAUD. If you just "make up" a story to get avoid the terms you attested to in the loan docs, that's LOAN FRAUD too.
If you have no intention of keeping this property as your primary residence / owner occupied - you better THINK before you sign.
I am not an attorney and this should not be perceived as legal advice. Be careful what advice you solicit and use.
Best of luck,
