There are many questions thrown around all asking the same thing: How long will it take to buy a home? The answer obviously depends on the contract you signed when you agreed to purchase. The day you are able to move in will be specified in the contract, either stating the closing date or the number of days from signing. Typically it takes between four and ten weeks, but it varies based on location.
One way to make the buying process faster is by considering the purchase of a foreclosed home.
