For Sale By Owner Guide

Step 6 - Closing The Deal

If everything is taken care of during the entire process, the closing should occur about 30-45 days after the sales agreement contract is signed by both parties. A meeting at the closing attorneys office to sign the deed and closing statement is done the day of closing. Both Buyer and Seller will usually be present for this meeting. Let’s hope things went well during negotiations!
