Hello Dear Deb,

That’s a great question!
However, this should have never come up as a problem, since your agent should have discussed this matter with you on the very beginning of signing the Purchase Agreement. Buyer normally takes possession after close of escrow, or if different it has to be stipulated in the purchase agreement (3 days after closing at 5:00pm) etc. I had some closings, the buyer requested 10 days after closing close, to take possession and move in.
Again Real Estate is the place where everything is possible, as long it is in writing and all parties involved agree to the terms.

Selling a house is is a very large and demanding transaction. It is in your best interest to hire a Realtor or an Attorney. Contract law is very specific. If there is a problem, the judge usually sides with the buyer. That would not be you. If there was a problem with the property, the buyer could file suit against you for numerous reasons. A Realtor or an Attorney would draft a contract with language to protect you. Even if you sell the property "AS-IS" there are other considerations such as fair market value. Do you have an accurate assesment of how much the property is worth? Will the neighbor be stealing the house? If you are trying to save money on the comission, it could cost you even more in the end. You might want to negotiate with a Realtor so that you are protected, and they get paid for a valuable service. It would be win-win for both of you. Please feel free to call or email with any questions. Have a wonderful day.

In this crazy, changing Real Estate Market, the seller needs all the help they can get from a professional Realtor to get the property sold. It takes a lot of creativity in these days, its not a question of saving the commission, it’s a question of paying more commission to get other Realtors interested in selling the property.
It’s all about getting multiple offers to the table, drive the price up and accept the best qualified buyers offer.
