Good morning, Linda:
We have represented buyers making all cash property purchases from private parties that settled and closed in four business days INCLUDING title search, termite and home inspections, and survey. But it takes a lot of planning and coordination and people have to adjust their schedules, so if you don't have a requirement to rush, giving everyone a couple weeks is generally better. If you are purchasing a government or bank owned property, they may have requirements that the settlement statement be delivered for their review 48 hours or as long as 5 business days before closing. If you have a full time agent with a Masters degree in Planning with Finance and over two decades of experience, working for you, you will likely do better in negotiations. I'd be pleased to provide that service. If you appreciate this answer, please give it a thumbs up, or if this was the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click.
