I grew up as a military brat, so my family moved around a lot. My parents were great about getting us involved in different activities to make the process more fun.

One thing they did was pull out a map and have us guess where our new home was. We also guessed the distance between where we lived and where we were moving to. The winner always got a prize.

Another thing is letting the kids help with decorating their room. Get them involved with picking colors, furniture, and more. You can also have them learn about the new location by telling them about the nearby attractions that they can visit.

If you have any questions for me about moving or anything else, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

How long does it take to close on a home?
The length of the closing period depends on the buyer and the type of loan they get. Getting a loan constitutes the longest part of the closing process. If you don’t use a loan and buy your home with cash, however, you can close within 10 to 14 days.

The longest part of getting the loan itself is getting your documentation to your lender. Make sure you get your loan documents to your lender the same day they’re requested, or at the very least the next day. Once the whole process goes to underwriting, everything stops once the lender requests documentation. The faster you can get them that documentation, the faster you can get to closing.

The faster you can provide your lender their requested documentation, the faster you can get to closing.

Typically, the average closing takes anywhere from 30 to 45 days because appraisal times can take a long time to come to completion.

If you have any questions about how long it takes to close a home or you’re thinking about buying or selling a home, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I’d be happy to help.
