I heard that within a week is possible, but generally how long does it take? Factoring in the amount of time necessary for a title search.

It took us 3.5 weeks in Pittsburgh, roughly. Last year.

It really all depends on the attorney that is working on the title search. If they are busy or aren't quick in their processing, then it's going to take longer. There was one that I worked on a couple of years ago that was completed in 10 days.

If there are no contingencies (appraisal, inspection, etc.) and you have cash on hand (liquid - cash means cash, not a line of credit) you made an offer & it was accepted the same day, there was a 24 hour turnaround with title work ... you wired funds on Tuesday or Wednesday - you could definitely close Thursday or Friday.

So yes, a week is definitely possible and probable - provided that everyone is doing their job and no glitches take place.

I've seen 3 days before from accepted offer to funding and recording. But 7-10 days is very doable, even with a home inspection in there, if everything goes smoothly.

I closed one, recently, in NC that took 10 days. I guess we could have pushed it to 7 days but 10 days gave us time to get all inspections done, etc.

Out here 7 days is hauling due to inspections and such. We typically shoot for 10 days with cash for the buyer to have due diligence time.

Depends on how long it takes to get the attorney, clear title established, and contracts signed.

A month with no interruptions in the process.

I have closed one with a loan in about 7-8 days so it would definitely be quicker than that.
