im buying a house so how long does Closing take?


Im buying a house in Long Island and i would like to know how long closing takes. I will buy the house with an FHA loan. How long does closing take with popular banks (Bank of America) and nonpopular banks (Chinatrust Bank). Also how much will closing be about? (Banks are an example)

Thank You


Also will the closing duration decrease because i have children who need to go to Middle School/High School and they need to be registered into the schools.

    Usually 30-60 days. Your contract actually should have a date specified on it. If it is a short sale it could take 6 months. Your kids schooling will have no bearing on it whatsoever.

    Push your Bank & Escrow Company to close your deal as soon as possible. They can do it quicker if they are not lazy or put your deal off.

    I looked for a new home, bought it, and closed on it in a couple of months.
