Great question. As of yesterday, the "official" answer is 4-6 weeks. If you don't see the ownership change to your name, contact your title company to make sure the documents were filed correctly. (I just went through this with a buyer this week.) Whether it's a foreclosure or fair market purchase, the timing is the same. If you just bought a new home, congratulations! If you're trying to see how much the home sold for, contact a Realtor and they can pull up the information before it posts on the Assessor's page.
