Depending on the bank, their policies and procedures, it can take a week or a year after it is accepted to close. If the bank requests more information or documents from one of the parties, it also depends how long it takes that (or those) party (or parties) to get the information to them. A professional agent can help you in every step and guide you in getting the information needed to quickly close on your home and move on with the next phase of your life.
