It all depends and there a lot of factors, but if you are trying to figure out when to tell your landlord you are moving….

Generally it takes between 45-60 days from when a buyer’s offer is accepted until closing (day you get your keys) for a financed purchase of a residential home in Massachusetts. 

A home purchase can finish faster if as a buyer you are on top of your home financing plan and work closing with your mortgage broker/lender. At the very least, you need to have an up-to-date financing letter from your lender. And make sure you know what timelines for closing that lender can support! 

Let your our real estate team (lender, agent, attorney and inspectors) know if you think know you may have a tight timeline for your home purchase! We can work with you to find the home and loan programs to meet your needs!
