Not factoring in drive time about 2-3 hours. Also depends on the vender's portal and how user friendly it is. I completed one last month and I had to upload 15 quality photos with it but their system wouldn't allow for multi upload of photos so I sat there uploading 1 at a time and due to photo size each one took 2-3 mins. ... more

Cindy is correct. No law requires it and your new lender will not require it, either.
Lenders only require that there is an operational hook up.

In multiple offer situations. Someone usually bids way too much to get the home, but ten the home does not appraise for the sales price. This can give the overbidding buyer cause to walk.

Other times the bid winner may simply change their mind and walk.

Kawain Payne answered:
If you need the proceeds from the sale of your home to purchase the new one, you should wait until the escrow actually closes.

Deals can fall apart at the last minute due to a buyer not being able to get their loan funded.

If you are able to pay CASH for the new home, and can afford to do it even if your home falls out of escrow...Go for it.

I suggest you be patient. New listings hit the market almost daily. No need to rush take it one deal at at time.

Best of luck to you,
Kawain Payne, Realtor

Hi Mike,

Im sorry to say that unless you have cash, these properties probably wont work for you. And that also explains why they have been on the market so long. If you like, I can send you a list of similar properties for your review.
