Who decides the closing date? Do the buyers? Do the sellers? Do the real estate agents? Does the loan officer?
As a buyer, you are probably ready to move-in to your new Spring Texas house tomorrow. As the sellers can’t seem to get their stuff, out of what you are already calling your house, soon enough.
As a seller, moving out tomorrow would be impossible because over the years you have lived in your home you have collected stuff. Not just a little stuff but a lot of stuff. All of it needing to be packed. Packing which certainly can not be done in just one day.
As a buyer, its impossible to try to predict what date the sellers would prefer to close on. Instead its just best to worry about what date fits your schedule. Later you can determine a date that will work for both yours and the sellers schedules.
Where to begin? To decide upon a date to close on, you need to ask yourself a series of questions:
Review your answers to these questions and decide what date works best for your schedule then let the negotiations begin. Typically negotiating the closing date is fairly easy, especially if the sellers are truly wanting to sell their Spring Texas home. But there are other times when deciding upon a closing date turns out to be the most difficult term for buyers and sellers to reach an agreement on.

She took us through the process which we thought was daunting and at times frustrating. With her excellent local knowledge (including the area, the builder, the market, local school and tax system to name a few) and experience with building a new home (each steps that need to happen and what to look out for), we were able to find a place quickly and go through the building process smoothly. With the ability to grasp our needs and interests fairly quickly, Jill demonstrated strong representation of our interests, including negotiations on our behalf and recommending additional steps which builders would not typically do. Jill had a strong focus on customer service, not only being responsive and answering every questions in detail, but also proactively go extra miles to help us at every step along the way, including alerting us the things we need to do and watch for, helping us out in the design selection process (which very few agents would do) , walking us through the paper works and highlighting issues. It was our pleasure to know Jill and work with her in our new chapter of life. We are very happy with her excellent work and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. read less
