How long does the purchase process take?

Buying a home is a competitive process, so we always aim to turn around every offer as quickly as possible.

When you’re ready to make an offer on a home, your agent will initiate an offer request to our team. We aim to respond with next steps within a few hours to ensure that our offer is as competitive as possible.

Here’s what you can expect once your agent make an offer request:

  1. Our team will take a look at the home, gather intel from your agent and other sources, and also apply our valuable knowledge of the home offers process to come up with the best possible price.
  2. We’ll reach out to you with all the important details on the offer and request permission to move forward.
  3. As soon as we have your consent on our offer price, we'll sign the offer documents for your agent to extend to the seller. 
  4. From there, we expect to receive an indication of interest from a seller within 24-48 hours. Sometimes a negotiation follows, but ideally we have a firm decision in under 72 hours.

Once your offer is accepted by the seller, Divvy will move forward with a meticulous inspection of the home to ensure everything is up to grade. This process is standard on any home purchase and typically lasts between 8 and 10 days. 

Assuming the home passes inspection, the remainder of the home closing process (title review, submitting your down payment, reviewing and signing your lease) will usually take 7-10 days.

Once closing is completed, it’s time to move into your new home!
