There is not really a blanket answer for that question. It depends on a variety of reasons. Are there contingencies to be satisfied in the contract? If so, time should be allowed for those.

If it does happen to be an all cash deal, or traditional bank loan, that window could be less than 30 days. However, if the financing instrument being used is a secondary market loan, then I would expect 30-45 days, maybe more, again depending on the loan type and season. ... more

Depends on turn-around time for title search, any inspections, and/or survey (if applicable).
Typically, in my area an all cash deal can be closed in 3 weeks or less. I have experienced transactions where the closing was 7 days or less from contract. Closing cost should be significantly less , again, depending on charges for the above mentioned items, plus the cost of the closing agent to conduct the closing. You will also have recording fees if you are purchasing, which need to be taken into consideration. ... more

I deal with several home owners that would be glad to consider a lease/purchase understanding that this is a purchase contract with a lease period preceding it.

It is uncommon for me to have rent-to-own listings. I do not advise it, but Craig's List might be your most likely source for rent-to-own listings. Disclaimer: Please watch out for false advertisers and person(s) seeking your personal information before double, triple, and even quadruple verifying that the listing is legitimate and that you are dealing with the rightful owners of the property. ... more

March is a great time everything starts to bloom and buyers are thinking about moving around the end of school if they have children or they want to make the move during their vacation time. But actually there's never a bad time to sell, if you are really wanting to move buyers are always looking, especially people who are being transferred they have to move when the company says. ... more

It's not that I was bored, I just thought a question about the Jackson market should only be answered by a Jackson real estate professional. I too know builders in the Jackson area. In fact, I know most of them. And even though it is true that larger homes have slowed from their previous pace, there are new ones started each week. There are also new deveoplments that have begun even after the slow down. The new construction market was bound to slow down here because it was growing at an unbelievable pace. I know the largest residential developer in this area and he is still looking for new developments to begin and exisiting ones to expand. The right project can and will work if it is planned properly. ... more
