13th saturday. Should we vacate the property the 15th of Feb or stay until the 25th since that is what was put in the contract?

Each state is a bit different but when does the transaction record with the county? That is probably the day you need to be out. The day that paper work is signed does not matter

You should read your contract carefully and talk to your agent who can explain what was agreed in the contract. Most of the time we write that the home will be broom clean on date of settlement.If seller wants possession for extra days we write a post settlement addendum and have them talk to an attorney to discuss it and sometimes buyers agree if sellers pay them rent for the extra days. Your agent can explain it best by reading your contract and if in doubt you should talk to your attorney.

Your Realtor should be the one to ask. They need to have reviewed your paperwork and should be able to answer any questions that you may have.

Congratulations on selling your home, that's wonderful! You will need to look at your purchase contract at the bottom of the first page and it will talk about "Closing and Occupancy". It will let you know if occupancy is due on the day escrow closes or let you know how many days you have in the house after escrow closes. You should speak to your agent so they can give you exact instructions.
