The time between placing a home on the market and actually selling it can be a stressful one for most sellers. Each showing could mean a potential buyer. Did they like the house? Were they here long enough to see all the great features? The time between getting an offer on the house and actually closing escrow can be even more stressful. Are the inspections going well? Can they get the loan? Knowing what happens now and what happens next will eliminate some of the stress.
