AZ Purchase Contract Timeline

Arizona Home Purchase Contract Timeline Here is how a typical 35-day purchase contract closing timeline may look for buying a home in Phoenix, AZ:

Day 0 – offer accepted so all contract timelines begin next day
Day 1 – start of buyer inspection period (usually 10 calendar days) to perform verification of all things important
Day 3 – receive SPDS (Seller Property Disclosure Statement) and CLUE (Comperhensive Loss Underwriting Exchange – insurance loss history experience) from seller (on or before this day)
Day 10 – deliver BINSR (Buyer Inspection Notice Seller Response) to seller (on or before this day) plus receive LSU (Loan Status Update) from lender (on or before this day)
Day 15 – receive BINSR seller response (on or before this day)
Day 20 – buyer decisions BINSR (on or before this day)
Day 21 – lender orders appraisal after BINSR is decisioned
Day 28 – receive appraisal (usually within a week from ordering)
Day 29 – buyer loan file submitted to lender underwriting
Day 31 – lender underwriting issues loan approval and loan documents ordered
Day 31 – evidence of any seller repairs must be provided (on or before this day)
Day 32 – title/escrow company receives buyer loan documents and finalizes closing statement
Day 33 – buyer and seller sign separately at title/escrow company
Day 34 – buyer performs final walkthrough at property and checks on any seller repairs
Day 35 – lender wires loan funds to title who sends file for recording at county
Day 35 – buyer obtains keys after confirmation of recording has been received

Of course, this is for a smooth closing without issues (say an appraisal shortfall which requires price/term renegotiations) or delays (such as buyer loan conditions that must be cleared prior to loan documents being issued). If either party is in breach of contract, the party not in breach may issue a cure notice to give notice to party in breach that they must correct the situation.
