Cash transaction can close in 15 days.  Financed transactions are going to require 30-45 days as the others have stated.  In hot seller markets there can be a lot of seller pressure to force early contingency removal dates on the buyer.  In Sacramento I see a lot of offers get countered with 7 day buyer inspection contingency removal and 17 day loan contingency removal.  The sellers want to know early that the transaction will go through.  In any case, once escrow starts the buyer should act quickly to move forward on the inspections and loan.

Closing can take place any where between 30-60 days.  It depends if it is a cash deal or a financing deal.  Typically you will have the home inspection in the first 7-15 days and then closing will take place 14-45 days after that

Michael is correct.  30-45 days.  30 is typical for most banks, depending on the type of loan, and 45 days is typical for HUD properties.  The bank will order the appraisal within the first two weeks of contract acceptance. In my state you have 10 days from contract acceptance to perform the home inspection, unless stated otherwise in the contract.

30-45 days after appraisal contingency is removed is average. Some lenders may need 45 plus days for some mortgage products, but that is rare. Closing can be in as little as 2 weeks with a cash transaction.
