When Can I Move In?

That depends on many factors, however, here is a snapshot of the process.
 
Once you have chosen a home, we enter into a Contract with the Sellers, through the Seller's agent.  The Buyers and Sellers then fulfill their obligations under the contract during a specific period of time, usually between 7-10 days.  The Contract then is considered "firm" and the home is "sold".
 
After the "SOLD" sticker appears on the sign on the lawn, there is a period of time until Completion and Possession.  Some contracts complete in as little as 2 weeks, but most are between 30 to 45, sometimes 60, days.  New construction is usually longer, depending on the progress of the builder.
 
As a rule of thumb, once the home is SOLD, count on moving in about 4 to 6 weeks.
