Depends on what you end up purchasing. If you bid on a short sale or foreclosure, it can take a few weeks to a few months to get an answer back from the bank. If you want new construction from ground up, you're looking at 4-6+ months. If you purchase from a normal seller, they normally want to sell ASAP but sometimes they will let you close later if they need to stay there longer anyways. BUT all in all, 3 months is a good starting point.

Kim,

This is typically a slower time for the Buffalo area but also the time serious buyers are looking for deals. Our son has been previewing Buffalo area property since July but has slowed his search and is waiting for the economy to stabilize, warmer weather, and favorable interest rates.

There is one thin for certain. It is never too soon to begin the process of making your home ready for the real estate market. Sorting, organizing, cleaning, painting, updating etc are things that will make your home sell faster and for more money.

Our best advice is regardless of when you decide to formally put your home on the market, there is no better time than now to start preparing for a successful selling experience by making your home look its best........

Good luck
