While I wish I could give you specifics in terms of a expenses and time frame for purchasing a home, a great deal depends on your own timing and your overall expectations.
The time frame in which you can purchase a home is much shorter in the case of an all-cash deal but nonetheless timing is very much dependent on the extent of the home search itself; the seller's ability to close quickly; and the availability of homes available in the location you desire.
Your expenses leading up to the actual closing (i.e., when you take legal possession of the home) would include closing costs; the price of the home inspection; and, of course, moving costs.

However, if you do this, you may be taken for a ride.
Your situation sounds like an example of when some brokers put units on the market for a lesser $$ than the market requires and then have buyers outbid each other.
You are better off staying away from such deals.
Kind regards,... more

Also make certain you keep a copy for your records. If you have lease please read it
through and you will see that these matters need to remedied. I wish you the best!... more
