Answering Your Questions About the Option Period

We’re taking a look at the option period and how sellers can prepare for it.


After you accept an offer for your home, we have reached a critical point in the transaction. We’re under contract, but before we can close, we have to go through the option period. Today we’re going to take a deep dive into this period to explain what you need to do to finalize the sale.

Feel free to watch the full video, or use these timestamps to browse specific topics at your leisure:

As you can see, the option period is a necessary and critical part of the transaction. You’ll have to plan for it whether you’re a buyer or seller.
