    If you are asking how long is the period from the time the contract is signed until you get to move in that should be written into your contract. The most normal time is about a month.

    If you are asking how much time should you set aside on the day you sign the closing papers, then that will likely be an hour if you are getting a mortgage. Less that twenty minutes if you are paying cash. It can easily take longer because of some glitch where papers have to be revised or something but an hour is most normal.

    Well congrats on the new house!!! Closing the deal on a house usually takes about 2 weeks to a months time. Hopefully everythings signed already, deeds yours and then you just have to move it.

    30 days unless the house is empty, then it can be much less.

    You should have your realtor explain the home buying process to you. There's a lot to it- and it gets complicated very quickly. If you don't know about closing, then there's probably a LOT you don't know about. Don't wind up feeling like you've been taken - demand your realtor explain things to you - that's what they're getting paid to do!

    If everyone shows up on time and there are no last minute hang up's a hour to 2 is ample time. Call the title company or better yet call the Realtor and ask him/her to call them and see how much time they have alloted.

    Good Luck and congrats!

    on account which you gained the bid on a house, you purchase settlement could desire to state an intensive of escrow date, this could be the date you may desire to close escrow purchase, sellers normally have 3-5 days to circulate out. i might ask your agent what's a solid date to offer your landlord as you will possibly prefer to have hire and loan overlap a pair of days to offer you time to circulate
