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.

It was my first time going through the new home building process so it helped make the meeting way less stressful. Jill has been there for me every step of the process even after the closing! I truly have never met a more passionate, hard working individual! I would HIGHLY recommend! read less
