The option period is a defined length of time that has been negotiated and agreed upon by both buyers and sellers. The option period starts the day AFTER the contract execution date and ends at 5 pm (local time) on the last day.
If you are buying a home in Spring Texas and you have a 10 day option period and the contract execution date is January 20th, then the option period ends at 5 pm (local time) on January 30th. All days in the contract are calendar days. Holiday or non-holiday days it doesn’t matter. Every day is counting as a day when determining the day that the option period ends.
But if you’re buying a home in Champaign Illinois, the option period may or may not end at 5 pm on January 30th because real estate is local and that includes the interpretation of when the option period ends.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.
She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all.
Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result.
I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
