The timeline between making an offer on a home and closing on a home is typically about 45 days. The seller accepts your offer or will counteroffer. If the offer is accepted, the seller takes the house off the market when you make an earnest money deposit. You'll schedule an inspection while the lender takes care of the appraisal and title search.
"We sold our home with Dustin Hewitt Homes and it was a smooth easy process. Dustin posted our home on social media and had it listed for what we wanted. It sold sooner than we hoped and he and his real estate team found us the perfect location to build our new home. We used Dustin because he knows the market and has lived here in Central Oregon his whole life."

Closing on a Home
The final step in your home purchase process is one of the most exciting, but can also conceal unplanned costs or problems. Make sure you are prepared for this exciting milestone. On closing day, the ownership of the property is transferred to you, the buyer. This day consists of transferring funds from escrow, providing mortgage and title fees, and updating the deed of the house to your name.
