Does a 90 day escrow requested by the seller hinder the sale of the house? The purpose would be so that seller has time to look for a house in another state.

What you get for your property and what it is worth are two totally different dollar amounts. It depends on how your agent markets it. I recently sold a property for $1.070,000 to an all cash buyer, after it fell out of escrow with a different buyer because it would not appraise over $850K a few months earlier.

So I got $220K over a current bank appraisal in an all cash deal.

I have done sales like this several times, when I properly market a property to get the most for the owners property, which is sometimes way more than the seller would have gotten using an agent using conventional marketing tools, compared to my super charged marketing to get you top dollar, or more.

If you are interviewing agents to sell your home, you should talk to me. I am a member of the Santa Barbara & Carpinteria MLS and I have bought and sold property in the Santa Barbara / Carpinteria area for myself and others. I live 15 minutes away in Ventura at the beach.

FHA loans takes time. They're really busy these days.
Most banks are looking for buyers that will put more down payment to show real interest in the property.
Some FHA loans don't close because they're strict with their guidelines.
